As used in KRS 211.861 to 211.869, unless the compact requires otherwise: <br>(1) &quot;Commission&quot; means the Central Midwest Interstate Low-Level Radioactive Waste Commission; (2) &quot;Cabinet&quot; means the Cabinet for Health and Family Services; <br>(3) &quot;Compact&quot; means the Central Midwest Interstate Low-Level Radioactive Waste Compact; (4) &quot;Disposal&quot; means the isolation of waste from the biosphere in a permanent facility designed for that purpose; (5) &quot;Facility&quot; means a parcel of land or site, together with the structures, equipment, and improvements on, or appurtenant to, the land or site, that is used or is being <br>developed for the treatment, storage, or disposal of low-level radioactive waste; (6) &quot;Low-level radioactive waste&quot; or &quot;waste&quot; means radioactive waste not classified as high-level radioactive waste, transuranic waste, spent nuclear fuel, or by-product <br>material as defined in Section 11e(2) of the Federal Atomic Energy Act. This <br>definition shall apply regardless of any declaration by the federal government or any <br>state that any radioactive material is exempt from any regulatory control; (7) &quot;Management plan&quot; means the plan adopted by the commission for the storage, transportation, treatment, and disposal of waste within the region; (8) &quot;Naturally-occurring radioactive material&quot; (NORM) means naturally occurring materials not regulated under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, whose <br>radionuclide concentrations have been increased by or as a result of human <br>practices. Naturally occurring radioactive material does not include the natural <br>radioactivity of rocks or soils, or background radiation, but instead refers to <br>materials whose radioactivity is technologically enhanced by controllable practices <br>(or by past human practices); (9) &quot;Person&quot; means any individual, corporation, business enterprise, or other legal entity, public or private, and any legal successor, representative, agent or agency of <br>that individual, corporation, business enterprise, or legal entity; (10) &quot;Region&quot; means the geographical area of the state of Illinois and the Commonwealth of Kentucky; (11) &quot;Regional facility&quot; means any facility as defined in this section that is located in Kentucky, and established by Kentucky pursuant to designation of Kentucky as a <br>host state by the commission; (12) &quot;Storage&quot; means the temporary holding of radioactive material for treatment or disposal; and (13) &quot;Treatment&quot; means any method, technique, or process, including storage for radioactive decay, designed to change the physical, chemical, or biological <br>characteristics of the radioactive material in order to render the radioactive material <br>safe for transport or management, amenable to recovery, convertible to another <br>usable material, or reduced in volume. Effective: June 20, 2005 Page 2 of 2 History: Amended 2005 Ky. Acts ch. 99, sec. 385, effective June 20, 2005. -- Created 1998 Ky. Acts ch. 46, sec. 2, effective July 15, 1998.
