The New York State Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Act (Chapter 673 of the Laws of 1986) requires low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) generators in New York State to submit annual reports regarding such waste to NYSERDA. If your facility generated, stored (on- or off-site) or disposed LLRW, you are probably required to submit a report. You are also probably required to submit a report if, during the next five years, you plan to generate LLRW that will require eventual disposal.
Use the links below to access reporting forms, instructions, regulations and the answers to Frequently Asked Questions. You must use the Long Form if you manage LLRW through any means other than Decay in Storage. If you manage LLRW only through Decay in Storage, please use the Short Form.
The forms are provided in Microsoft Word Format. They can be downloaded, filled in, saved and submitted by email. Forms are no longer year-specific. You will need to enter the current reporting year on the form as well as the four-digit Generator ID that appears on the mailing label of the postcard you received in January. If there is no Generator ID listed on your mailing label or if you have lost your mailing label, you may leave it blank. After completing your form, please save it. Next year you will be able to simply update this year's form. You may submit your form electronically to the address provided below.
For those who do not have Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat .PDF versions of the forms have been provided. These can be accessed using Acrobat Reader, which is a free download. They cannot be saved or transmitted. They should be printed, filled in and submitted by regular mail.
*NOTE: right-click on link and save document to your computer first; do not fill in online. Document will not save.

If you would prefer to be sent paper copies of the forms, simply contact Alyse Peterson at (518) 862-1090 ext. 3274.
The report requires information regarding waste as it was received by licensed LLRW disposal facilities during each calendar year; this data may be gathered from disposal facility manifests. Be aware that the interval between the date the waste leaves your facility and the date it is received by the disposal facility may affect your reporting data. If you use the services of a LLRW broker or processor, that firm should be able to assist you in compiling the data. The report also requires information regarding LLRW stored on, or off, your site.
Completed report forms should be submitted to:
