STATUS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NUCLEAR WASTE POLICY ACT OF 1982 AS OF SEPTEMBER 30, 1984

In March 1984, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources requested that GAO report quarterly on the status of DOE's progress in implementing the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. This first report covers program activities that occurred from July through September 1984. It highlights several management initiatives taken during the period by the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management, the Office charged by the act with the responsibility for implementing its provisions. Also included is a description of the status of the Nuclear Waste Fund, the separate fund that receives fees from the owners of operating nuclear power plants and other waste-producing facilities and finances the development and construction of the nation's first geologic repository for commercial nuclear waste.
