Category A – CCA Chapters and Appendices with Major Revisions

Category A includes those portions of the CCA that will undergo major revision, and in limited instances, consolidation of related appendices. Completely revised portions for the CRA are Chapters 1, 5, and 6, and Appendix QAPD.

 In order to simplify the structure and ensure relevance to compliance, 17 CCA Appendices will be consolidated into 4 categorical appendices. This will result in CRA Appendices: BARRIERS (consolidating BACK, EBS, PCS, and SEAL), TRU WASTE (consolidating WCA, WCL, and WAP), PA (consolidating CCDFGF, CODELINK, IRES, MASS, PAR, PORSURF, SA, SCR, SOTERM, and TFIELD), and MON (replacing EMP, DMP, GTMP, GWMP, MON {1996}, and SMP)
 

  Category B – CCA Chapters and Appendices with Minor Revisions

Category B includes those portions of the CCA that will be brought forward into the 2004 CRA without major revisions/additions. The CCA appendices to be brought forward are AIC, AUD, CLI, PEER, PIC, USDW and WRAC.  Chapters that will be brought forward with minor revisions are 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8.  Each of these appendices and chapters will contain the required information for a complete application.
 

 

Category C – CCA Appendices Incorporated by Reference

Category C includes those CCA Appendices that will be referenced in but not physically included in the 2004 CRA.  This category of appendices establishes WIPP baseline information that is not expected to change during the lifetime of the facility. These are D&D, DEF, DVR, EPIC, FAC, GCR, HYDRO, IRD, PEER, RBP, SUM, and XRE.
 

  Category D – CCA Appendices That Will Be Eliminated

Category D includes CCA Appendices that will be eliminated or incorporated into other portions of the 2004 CRA.  These are Appendices BECR, BRAGFLO, CUTTINGS, DEL, DMP, EMP, GENII, GTMP, GWMP, LMP, NUTS, PANEL, SECOTP2D, SECOFL2D, SER, SMP, and VCMP.
 

  Category E – New Additions for the CRA

Bring forward portions of the CCA that remain valid and add new or supplemental information unique to recertification. Appendix DATA is an example of a new addition that will describe the results from experimental programs and monitoring programs since the CCA was submitted. Supplements will also be produced for Chapter 9, and Appendices AUD and PEER.
