Radioactive Waste Disposal: Inspection, Enforcement and Complaints

Inspection requirements for sites licensed for radioactive waste. Agency enforcement requirements and how to make a complaint.


At least once each year, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Field Operations Division inspects each facility that is licensed to handle or dispose of radioactive materials. We may conduct additional inspections as necessary. You may find each inspection report filed under the facility’s license number at the TCEQ Records Services in Austin.

If the inspection reveals violations, the rules are enforced as described in  Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 70Exit TCEQ Find information about inspections in the TCEQ publication The TCEQ Has Inspected Your Business. What Does This Mean to You?, RG-344.


If you have any questions about the terms of a facility’s license or the related rules, contact us. If you have questions about a facility that is under formal enforcement, contact our Enforcement Division.


Go to our Reporting an Environmental Complaint web page to register a complaint about radioactive waste, or any facility licensed by the TCEQ for the disposal of radioactive material. You may also complete an online form to register your complaint.
