Description: Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) are materials whose natural radioactivity has been technologically enhanced. NORM is a subset of naturally occurring or accelerator-produced radioactive materials (NARM). Neither NORM nor NARM is regulated under the Atomic Energy Act (AEA), thus a NORM waste that is also a hazardous waste does not meet the definition of a mixed waste, and would only be regulated by RCRA.
