LAW OF UKRAINE

of June 30, 1995 No. 255/95-BP

About the treatment of radioactive waste

(as amended on 13-04-2020)

This Law is aimed at providing protection of the person and the surrounding environment from harmful effects of radioactive waste at the present stage and in the future.

The law extends to all types of activity with radioactive waste.

Section I. General provisions

Article 1. Main terms, concepts and their determination

In this Law terms and concepts are used in the following value:

producers of radioactive waste - legal entities or physical persons as a result of which activities radioactive waste are formed;

dolgosushchestvuyushchy radioactive waste - radioactive waste which level of release from control of body of state regulation of nuclear and radiation safety is reached in 300 years and more;

burial of radioactive waste - placements of radioactive waste in the object intended for the treatment of radioactive waste without intention of their use;

storage of radioactive waste - placements of radioactive waste in object in which isolation from the surrounding environment, physical protection and radiation monitoring, and also possibility of the subsequent withdrawal, conversion, transportation and burial is provided;

immobilization of radioactive waste - transfer of radioactive waste in other form by hardening, inclusion in any matrix or the conclusion in hermetic cover;

The state inventory of storages of radioactive waste - the code of the systematized data on objects for storage or burial of radioactive waste;

conditioning of radioactive waste - transactions on preparation of radioactive waste for transportation, storage and burial. Conditioning can be performed by placement of radioactive waste in container or their immobilization;

short-existing radioactive waste - radioactive waste which level of release from control of body of state regulation of nuclear and radiation safety is reached earlier than in 300 years;

the object intended for the treatment of radioactive waste - the construction, the room or the equipment intended for collection, transportation, conversion, storage or burials of radioactive waste and also nuclear installation in process of removal from operation after recognition by its installation for the treatment of radioactive waste;

processing of radioactive waste - the transactions intended for safety or economy of means by change of characteristics of radioactive waste;

conversion of radioactive waste - any transaction changing characteristics of radioactive waste, in particular preliminary processing and conditioning;

the treatment of radioactive waste - all types of activity (including the activities connected with removal from operation) concerning operating, preliminary processing, processing, conditioning, transportation, storage or burial of radioactive waste;

preliminary processing of radioactive waste - deactivation, collection, sorting of radioactive waste;

radiation safety in case of the treatment of radioactive waste - not exceeding of the admissible limits of radiative effects on personnel, the population and the surrounding environment established by regulations, rules, standards on safety, and also restriction of migration of radionuclides to the surrounding environment;

radioactive waste - material objects and substances, activity of radionuclides or radioactive pollution of which exceeding the limits set by existing rules provided that use of these objects and substances is not provided;

The state register of radioactive waste - consecutive current record of acts of special form of education, physical and chemical structure, amounts, properties, and also transportations, storage and burial of radioactive waste;

release level - the limit of activity or radioactive pollution established by body of state regulation of nuclear and radiation safety in case of which or below which radioactive waste can be exempted from control of body of state regulation of nuclear and radiation safety;

specialized enterprise according to the treatment of radioactive waste - the company (consolidation), what, their conversion, transportation, the storage and (or) burial performing collection of radioactive waste on the basis of the license;

storage of radioactive waste - construction for storage or burial of radioactive waste with obligatory providing the engineering, geological, physical and other barriers interfering migration of radionuclides;
