EPA/OAR RIN: 2060-AP43 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: Revision of 40 CFR Part 192--Health and Environmental Protection Standards for Uranium and Thorium Mill Tailings and Uranium In Situ Leaching Processing Facilities 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed new health and environmental protection standards under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (UMTRCA) of 1978. The standards proposed in this action would be applicable to byproduct materials produced by uranium in-situ recovery (ISR) and would be implemented by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and NRC Agreement States. EPA has determined to withdraw this proposal at this time because the current and projected level of activity in the uranium recovery industry is significantly reduced compared to previous expectations.
