    June 24, 2016 – Advisory Committee on the Medical Uses of Isotopes – The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission will convene a teleconference meeting of the Advisory Committee on the Medical Uses of Isotopes (ACMUI) on June 24, 2016, to discuss the draft report of the ACMUI Radioactive Seed Localization (RSL) Subcommittee and discuss potential rulemaking to expand the financial assurance requirements for some radioactive byproduct material. The RSL report will include the subcommittee’s comments on the draft RSL licensing guidance. For the second topic, NRC staff will summarize the results of a recently completed scoping study to determine whether financial planning requirements for decommissioning and end-of-life management for some radioactive byproduct material, are necessary. NRC staff believes that the financial assurance requirements in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 30.35 should be expanded to include all byproduct material Category 1 and 2 radioactive sealed sources tracked in the National Source Tracking System. Meeting information, including a copy of the agenda and handouts, will be available at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/acmui/meetings/2016.html. The agenda and handouts may also be obtained by contacting Ms. Sophie Holiday using the information below.

    July 21, 2016 – Notice of Public Meeting To Inform the Design of a Consent-Based Siting Process for Nuclear Waste Storage and Disposal Facilities – The U.S Department of Energy (DOE) is implementing a consent-based siting process to establish an integrated waste management system to transport, store, and dispose of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. In a consent-based siting approach, DOE will work with communities, tribal governments and states across the country that express interest in hosting any of the facilities identified as part of an integrated waste management system. As part of this process, the Department is hosting a series of public meetings to engage communities and individuals and discuss the development of a consent-based approach to managing our nation’s nuclear waste. A public meeting will be held in Minneapolis on July 21, 2016. DATES: The meeting will take place on Thursday, July 21, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. CDT. Informal poster sessions will be held from 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. CDT and again after 9:30 p.m. CDT. Department officials will be available to discuss consent-based siting during the poster sessions. ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held at Hilton Minneapolis, 1001 Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403. To register for this meeting and to review the agenda for the meeting, please go to energy.gov/consentbasedsiting.

    September 3-8, 2017 – 4th International Conference on Radioecology & Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) – Berlin, Germany. After the success of the previous events held in Bergen, Norway in June 2008, Hamilton, Canada in June 2011 and Barcelona, Spain in September 2014, the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire (IRSN) and the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA) are pleased to announce that the 4th International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity (ICRER) will be held in Berlin, Germany, 3-8 September 2017. Please save the date!! The aim of the conference is to review and discuss recent achievements in radioecology and related disciplines, as well as to promote continued development in these subjects in order to improve the radiological protection of humans and the environment. The International Conference on Radioecology and Environmental Radioactivity 2017 will cover the acquisition of basic scientific knowledge in research dedicated to any human and wildlife exposure situations for a wide range of radioactive sources and scenarios (planned, existing and emergency situations), as well as identifying new societal needs along with technical requirements for regulators and industry. This will include environmental monitoring strategies, advances in metrology as well as development of validated models to better predict the consequences of all sources of radioactivity; industrial, (enhanced) natural, accidental and potential. Advances in methods dedicated to integrated and graded approach for human and wildlife radiological risk assessment will be another operational focus of the conference. Research combining “lab-field-modelling” approach and fit-for-purpose applications will be appreciated. Presentation of major outcomes from research programmes on the environmental consequences of the Fukushima and Chernobyl accidents will be welcome. Design of appropriate emergency preparedness routines will be another focus area, as well as supporting the development of laws and regulations that protect man and ecosystems from the effects of ionising radiation. Openness to other disciplines to integrate their skills and knowledge to improve radioecology, and capitalisation of best practices, tools and data in the various fields of research is encouraged.
    The conference will be a key forum for researchers, industry, regulators and experts for whom radioactivity in the environment is an interest area. It will include a selection of oral presentations, as well as short oral presentations for selected posters and poster exhibition. More information about deadlines, abstract submission, registration etc. will be available very soon.
