Abstract: This paper assesses aspects of work performed to determine operations requirements for the Transportation System (TS) that will ship spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste (HLW) to the Department of Energy's (DOE's) Civilian Radioactive Waste Management System (CRWMS). The work focused on requirements for shipping SNF from commercial power reactors and other places of storage. Requirements for shipping HLW have been left for future evaluations. This paper presents the results of work to establish TS operations requirements that assure that the CRWMS system will accommodate the SNF selected by Purchasers for delivery while being cost effective in its composition and operation.
