EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AR60 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Criteria for the Certification and Recertification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the Disposal Regulations; Panel Closure Redesign 
Abstract: This rule will propose to modify a small portion of 40 CFR 194, "Criteria for the Certification and Re-certification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant's Compliance with the 40 CFR part 191 Disposal Regulations." 40 CFR part 194, appendix A, condition 1 currently stipulates that the Option D Panel Closure included in DOE's 1996 Compliance Certification application be implemented to seal filled waste panels in the repository. On September 28, 2011, DOE submitted a Planned Change Request that proposes the replacement of the concrete monolith and mortared explosion wall included in the Option D Panel Closure with an alternative design consisting of steel bulkheads and mined salt backfill. According to DOE, implementation of Option D presents significant technical obstacles, and the proposed change meets the same operational performance requirements while reducing costs and impacts on waste emplacement activities.
