D&D and Disposal, Reuse and Recycling of Radioactive Material and NORM


I suggest the first place you look, besides here, is: the HPS Decommissioning Section Web Site

Also, try the

The International Society for Decontamination and Decommissioning Professionals

The primary objective of the International Society for Decontamination and Decommissioning Professionals is to foster communications between individuals interested in decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) activities.

The ISDDP can be contacted at their WWW site or by e-mail at isddp@aol.com
