EPA received the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) official Compliance Recertification Application on March 26, 2014. The comment period for the application has not yet opened; the Agency will publish a Federal Register notice in the near future which will officially open the public comment period. Once this occurs, the comment period will remain open until EPA specifies the end of it with a future Federal Register notice announcing its completeness determination.


DOE's application and supporting documents are available on below in pdf format:

You may also view DOE's complete application on their website listed below, including references and appendices:

Once the Federal Register notice announcing the opening of the comment period is published, an official docket for this action will be created. All documents pertaining to the 2014 WIPP Recertification (including accessing & submitting public comments) will be then be made available through regulations.gov.  A link to this docket will be provided here as well once it the docket has been established.
