The Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors' Source Collection and Threat Reduction Program

Opportunity to Dispose of Unused Radioactive Sources

The Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD) and DOE/NNSA have entered into a cooperative agreement to support consolidation and disposal of commercially disposable radioactive sealed sources at the State level. SCATR’s goal is to collect sources being stored and not used that pose threat to public health and safety and could possibly be used for malicious intent. DOE recognizes that the availability of disposal of such sources is limited and expensive; and has initiated this rare opportunity for licensees to have financial assistance in properly securing and disposing of these sources through this CRCPD program.
