(I)Considerations. Determination of the classification of waste involves two considerations.* Participating in the First, consideration must be given to the concentration of long-lived radionuclides (and theirProcessshorter-lived precursors) whose potential hazard will persist long after such precautions as* Legislative Calendarsiinstitutional controls, improved waste form, and deeper disposal have ceased to be effective.* Bill Information iThese precautions delay the time when long-lived radionuclides could cause exposures. In4addition, the magnitude of the potential dose is limited by the concentration and availability of* Laws andAgencyRulesradionuclide at the time of exposure. Second, consideration must be given to theIf theconcentration of shorter-lived radionuclides for which requirements on institutional controls,* Legislative Agencies -,II,i11iwaste form, and disposal methods are effective.* Legislative E-mail Lists,H Kids'Pages,'(2) Classes of waste.iI* Washington'State Historand Culture'(b) Class B waste is waste that must meet more rigorous requirements on waste formensure stability after disposal.

The physical form and characteristics of Class A waste must meet theminimum requirements set forth in WAC 246-249-050(1). If Class A waste also meets thestability requirements set forth in WAC 246-249-050(2), it is not necessary to segregate thewaste for disposal.%eWulto*Performance Audit Boar( d(c) Class C waste is waste that not only must meet more rigorous requirements on wasteform to ensure stability but also requires additional measures at the disposal facility toprotect against inadvertent intrusion. The physical form and characteristics of Class C wastemust meet both the minimum and stability requirements set forth in WAC 246-249-050.(3) Classification determined by long-lived radlonuclides. If the waste contains onlyradionuclides listed in Table 1, classification shall be determined as follows:401ndw U.A*kaWashingbri.t.A.(a) If the concentration does not exceed 0.1 times the value in Table 1, the waste is Class(b) If the concentration exceeds 0.1 times the value in Table 1, but does not exceed thevalue in Table 1, the waste is Class C.(c) If the concentration exceeds the value in Table 1, the waste is not generallyacceptable for near-surface disposal.(d) For waste containing mixtures of radionuclides listed in Table 1, the total concentrationshall be determined by the sum of fractions rule described in subsection (7) of this section.

Specific approval of the department is required for disposal of theseradionuclides if their concentration is greater than ten percent of the Table Ivalue.(4) Classification detennined by short-lived radionuclides. If the waste does notcontain any of the radionuclides listed in Table 1, classification shall be determined based onthe concentrations shown in Table 2. If the radioactive waste does not contain anyradionuclides listed in either Table 1 or 2. it is Class A.(a) If the concentration does not exceed the value of Column 1, the waste is Class A.(b) If the concentration exceeds the value in Column 1, but does not exceed the value inColumn 2, the waste is Class B.(c) If the concentration exceeds the value In Column 2, but does not exceed the value inColumn 3, the waste is Class C.(d) If the concentration exceeds the value in Column 3, the waste is not generallyacceptable for near-surface disposal.(e) For wastes containing mixtures of the radionuclides listed in Table 2, the totalconcentration shall be determined by the sum of fractions rule described in subsection (7) ofthis section.Concentration, Curies/Table 2RadionuclideCubic MeterColumn IColumn 2Column 3Total of allradionuclideswith less than 5-year700(*)(*)

Practical consideration such as the effects ofeternal radiation andintemal heat generation on transportation, handling, and disposal will limitthe concentrations for these wastes. These wastes shall be Class B unlessthe concentrations of other radionuclides in Table 2 determine the waste tobe Class C independent of these radionuclides. Specific approval of thedepartment is required prior to packaging of Class B tritium waste.(5) Classification determined by both long-lived and short-lived radionuclides. If thewaste contains a mixture of radionuclides, some of which are listed in Table 1, and some ofwhich are listed in Table 2, classification shall be determined as follows:(a) If the concentration of a radionuclide listed in Table I is less than 0.1 times the valuelisted in Table 1, the class shall be that determined by the concentration of radionuclideslisted in Table 2.(b) If the concentration of a radionuclide listed in Table 1 exceeds 0.1 times the value.--listed in Table 1, the waste shall be Class C, provided the concentration of radionuclideslisted in Table 2 does not exceed the value shown in Column 3 of Table 2.(6) Classification of waste with radionuclides other than those listed In Tables Iand 2. If the waste does not contain any radionuclides listed in either Table I or 2, it is ClassA.(7) The sum of fractions rule for mixtures of radionuclides. For determiningclassification for waste that contains a mixture of radionuclides, it is necessary to determinethe sum of fractions by dividing each radionuclides concentration by the appropriate limit andadding the resulting values. The appropriate limits must all be taken from the same columnof the same table. The sum of the fractions for the column must be less than or equal to 1.0 ifthe waste class is to be determined by that column. Example: A waste contains Sr-90 in a3concentration of 50 Cirmand Cs-1 37 in a concentration of 22 Cim 3. Since theconcentrations both exceed the values in Column 1, Table 2, they must be compared toColumn 2 values. For Sr-90 fraction, 50/150 0.33; for Cs-137 fraction, 22/44 0.5; the sumof the fractions 0.83. Since the sum is less than 1.0, the waste is Class B.(8) Determination of concentration in wastes. The concentration of a radionuclide maybe determined by indirect methods such as use of scaling factors which relate to the inferredconcentration of one radionuclide to another that is measured, or radionuclide materialaccountability, if there is reasonable assurance that the indirect methods can be correlatedwith actual measurement The concentration of a radionuclide may be averaged over thevolume of the waste, or weight of the waste if the units are expressed as nanocuries pergram.[Statutory Authority: RCW 70.98.050 and 70.98.080. 91-16-109 (Order 187), § 248-249-040, filed 8/7/91.
