Today, wastes that have specific activities lower than those assigned to solid radioactive waste, but higher than levels permitted for unrestricted use are enclosed in a legal vacuum. This fact necessitates searching for legislative and regulatory solutions. In order to find the most acceptable solution, this review examines the practice of solving similar problems in countries with developed nuclear energy. Recommendations of international organizations on the development of a safe management system of such waste are reviewed as well. Based on the information presented in this review, the allocation of this waste category including the establishment of legislative and regulatory requirements for its safe management seems the most logical and taking into account the current practice of waste management in Russia.

This article contains the current situation in respect to the environmental concentrations of anthropogenic and natural tritium. There are presented and analyzed domestic standards for НТО of all Radiation Safety Standards (NRB), as well as the regulations analyzed for tritium in drinking water taken in other countries today. This article deals with the experience of limitation of tritium and focuses on the main problem of rationing of tritium — rationing of organically bound tritium.
