  • Standards in DevelopmentThe American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) is working on DD&R related standards. The DD&R Division has recruited members to support this effort. The DD&R division will interact with the ASTM D&D Standards group during this development phase.

  • DD&Rs FutureU.S. commercial decommissioning market shrinkingFocus on license renewalFocus on continual decommissioning during long term operationFocus on small/research reactors and rad. facilitiesU.S. government decommissioning market also shrinkingEuropean D&D market increasingBNG major D&D effortResearch and other smaller reactor D&DInput to new reactor designs on lessons learned which enable future decommissioning cost reductions Decommissioning fund size

  • ConclusionsA Division with challenges due to industry trendsSurge of orders in 1960s 1980s made decommissioning last resortDecisions in 1990s based on politics and misconceptions of costs of other energy sources lead to early closure of big unitsNew trend towards orders in 2000s means little if any decommissioningFuture role of Division in design planning for decommissioningLong term 80 year + operating lives lead to decommissioning in progress opportunitiesFederal heritage sites will eventually be finishedDivision will need a bold effort in review of direction to hold membership base and provide true value to facility operatorsNew members from October 2006 through April 2007 total 114

    Recent Change to add long-term Surveillance and maintenanceConcern that completion of utility decommissioning will adversely affect membership numbersMark Price and discuss FCWMMark PriceTMI-2 Session also supported by ETD and OPDWinter Meeting strong focus on DOE initiativesTopical Meeting to Highlight Rocky Flats completion and also working with the DOE Legacy Management group in Grand Junction to highlight this areaDick Raaz Colorado Local Section Head is General Chair, Emmy Roos on Local Planning CommitteePlanning for something in excess of 100 papers and 200 attendees3 tracks D&D, Waste Management & Legacy ManagementDid her review and Lynn Goodman has lead Public Policy Committee Background to the Proposed CommitteeThe RIC is proposed as a standing committee of the Decommissioning, Decontamination, & Reutilization (DD&R Division). The committee replaces the SCRS and continues the regulatory input to the federal rulemaking process that is most relevant to the DD&R activities. The committee will also continue the work on the site and material release issues and criteria as well as the development of the Position Statement 64.KUNZ NOLAN HERTEL Sharon Kerrick One student at DC meetingRuss ? CARL?De-fueled Safety Analysis and Emergency Plan Status: Draft previously developed for utilityapplications. Recommendation has always been to complete the standard. Action: Needs to have a lead(Working Group chair) with Working group members move it forward. Operator TrainingForUtility D&D Site Status: Final draft 98% complete which includes former comments from DD&R EC Members.Action: Completion offinal draftstill requires an additional review beforeapproval by ANSI. Anticipate approval asStandard in 2006. Validation of Data from Radiological Analyses for UseinEnvironmental Remediation Status: Final draft complete Sept 2005.Still requires additional review before approval by ANSI.Action:Don Eggett has responsibility to obtain final approval before approval by ANSI. Anticipate approval asStandard in 2006

    Skeleton Draft 2 years ago No action on De-Fueled SA and EP.Validation of Data from Radiological Analyses for Use in Environmental Remediation - Been Reviewed and Project Instruction Approved to reflect current input. Needs final review to subcommittee --- 2006 maybe

    OPS TRAINING STILL IN REVIEW Commercial onlyDefueled no lead

    Will complete ops training and validation if no defueled then bring it up at DD&R
