Radioactive Waste Disposal: Inspection, Enforcement and Complaints
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Critical Infrastructure Division (CID), Homeland Security Section inspects each facility that is licensed to handle, process, store, or dispose of radioactive materials. Depending on the operational status of the facility, inspections are conducted annually or every two years. Additional inspections are conducted as necessary. You may find each inspection report filed under the facility’s license number at the TCEQ Central Records, CID, or Radioactive Materials Division in Austin.
If the inspection reveals violations, applicable rules are enforced as described in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 336. Find information about inspections in the TCEQ publication RG-344: The TCEQ Has Inspected Your Business. What Does This Mean to You?.
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.
