You will be required to comply with this code if you hold a source or facility licence and you intend to dispose of controlled materials or controlled apparatus.
It is also relevant for use by those involved in site selection, design, safety assessment, operation, regulation and rehabilitation of a disposal facility.
The purpose of this code is to provide a basis for the near-surface disposal of solid radioactive waste in a way which ensures that there is no unacceptable risk or detriment to humans, other biota or the environment, at present, and that future risks or detriment will not exceed those currently accepted. Provisions of this code are intended to encourage uniform practice in Australia for the near-surface disposal of radioactive waste.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
