Background Information

In June 2011, WASSC-31 concluded that the Safety Guide WS-G-1.2 (published in 2002) was to be revised as DS459 in the light of new requirements and developments. The main input considered for the revision are the recently published relevant Safety Requirements and Safety Guides and current practices and experiences in Member States, but also a number of international conferences and workshops on naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) held in 2013 and 2014.

DS459 focus on residues generated from uranium production and other NORM activities. It applies for newly generated residues and new facilities (including from operation, decommissioning and remediation). The Safety Guide takes into consideration the needs of a new audience with rather weak awareness of radiation safety in NORM activities. It considers the less developed knowledge and experience to NORM residues compared with those for radiation sources and the nuclear fuel cycle.

DS459, due to its scope and nature, is a complex Safety Guide, and to address in-situ leaching adequately, a specific Safety Report, Safety Aspects of Development and Management of Uranium Production by In-situ leaching, is being developed.
