EIS-0218: Revision to the Record of Decision

Proposed Nuclear Weapons Nonproliferation Policy Concerning Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel

The May 1996 Record of Decision limits the number of casks containing spent nuclear fuel on a single ocean-going vessel to eight. Based upon the experience gained during the implementation of the Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel Acceptance Program, DOE has come to recognize that a need may arise during implementation of the policy for the United States to ship up to sixteen casks of spent nuclear fuel on a single ocean-going vessel.
