Title: Recertification Project Plan

Abstract

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Recertification Project was established to meet the WIPP Land Withdrawal Act (LWA) (Public Law 102-579, as amended by Public Law 104-201) (102nd U.S. Congress, 1992) requirement to demonstrate continued compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) disposal regulations. This plan sets the overall direction for a complex and interdependent set of tasks that is repeated at five-year intervals and culminates in EPA certification that the WIPP facility demonstrates continued compliance with Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 191, "Environmental Radiation Protection Standards for the Management and Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel, High-Level and Transuranic Radioactive Wastes," pursuant to LWA sections 8(d)(1) and 8(f).
