Abstract
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing environmental protection standards for evaluating the risks and characterizing problems associated with disposal of radioactive wastes arising from decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) operations. A list was compiled of organizations operating 1042 active particle accelerators. A review of the operational health physics problems at these facilities, was used to characterize the types and volumes of wastes which are likely to result from D&D. The accelerators were grouped into three general classes (constant direct current field machines, incremental acceleration machines and magnetic field machines) based upon the method of particle acceleration.
