Abstract This paper discusses the impact of the Price Anderson Amendments Act (PAAA) of 1988 and the new U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear safety requirements on operations at the Waste Examination and Assay Facility (WEAF). The WEAF is located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The primary function of the WEAF is to perform nondestructive examination and assay of the contents of waste containers containing contact-handled transuranic (CH-TRU) wastes, CH-TRU mixed wastes, and low-level waste (LLW).
