ADOPTION OF TS-1-R, THE MOST RECENT CHALLENGE TO CASK CERTIFICATION

John Patterson

Foreign Research Reactor Liaison
NAC International

ABSTRACT

Cask owners and the Department of Energy have invested considerable effort and resources toward certification of transportation casks for the broad variety of research reactor spent fuels.  Adoption of the IAEA’s latest cask safety recommendations, TS-1-R, by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) presents a new challenge to cask owners wishing to continue their cask certifications at the highest possible level.  The paper will present the efforts required by NAC International in certifying the NAC-LWT to TS-1-R and the interaction with NRC leading to the issuance of the new cask certificate.
