Abstract

Risk assessment practices and the need for standards are reviewed with respect to the management of two diverse types of waste: (1) radioactive waste; and (2) solid waste (municipal waste). Risk assessment of facilities and sites for radioactive waste disposal take the form of a risk-based safety assessment, called performance assessment. The assessments are required by law and are performed by the owner/operators of the waste facilities whose-safety is regulated by such regulatory authorities as the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) or the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) orboth. For solid waste, the use of contemporary risk assessment methods hasbeen primarily by the regulatory agencies, mostly the USEPA. There are no requirements for operators of landfills or other waste disposal sites to perform risk assessments, but guidance for performing such analyses is provided by the USEPA. The primary purpose of the risk assessment of solid wasteshas been to provide a technical basis for setting standards. Risk assessments are sometimes used to evaluate specific design features of solid waste disposal facilities such as liners for a disposal site. While risk assessment is a requirement and in the main stream of the safety management of radioactive disposal facilities, it is really just be-inning to make its move into the world of solid waste management.
