According to a press release, the intent of the recommendation is to assure that operations at DOE and LANL regarding the handling, transport, and disposal of transuranic waste from LANL, as well as other generator sites to WIPP, establish policies and procedures that will ensure safe and secure operations that prevent shutdowns of waste disposal operations for any extended period.
