On May 08, 2020 (85 FR 27332), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the federal register providing an additional method for members of the public to submit their comments on its March 06, 2020 (85 FR 13076) proposed interpretation of its low-level radioactive waste disposal regulations that would permit licensees to dispose of waste by transfer to persons who hold specific exemptions for the purpose of disposal via an email address established for this purpose. The due date of comments requested in the document published on March 6, 2020 (85 FR 13076) ends on July 20, 2020. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the Commission is able to ensure consideration only for comments received before this date. The NRC staff will continue to monitor the current public health emergency to determine if an additional extension may be warranted.
