Greetings and Happy New Year!
In an effort to promote transparency and share information, the Waste
Confidence Directorate is planning to hold monthly Status Update
Teleconferences on the third Wednesday of every month from 1:30 p.m. to
2:30 p.m. EST (10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PST). The NRC staff will
discuss the status of its development efforts related to the Waste
Confidence generic environmental impact statement and rule, and provide
additional background information (e.g., documents to be released,
public meeting schedules) as warranted. Interested parties are invited
to participate and ask questions; however, please note that discussion
in this forum will not be considered as formal comments and will not be
considered in the EIS development.
The first public teleconference will be held on Wednesday, January
16, and will provide an overview of the recently completed scoping
period and next steps in the Waste Confidence environmental review.
With the exception of the agenda, which is included as the last page in
the meeting notice (linked below), there are no slides or handouts
associated with this teleconference.
