Partnering for Long-Term Management of Radioactive Waste

Evolution and Current Practice in Thirteen Countries

National radioactive waste management programmes are in various phases of siting facilities and rely on distinct technical approaches for different categories of waste. In all cases, it is necessary for institutional actors and the potential or actual host community to build a meaningful, workable relationship. Partnership approaches are effective in achieving a balance between the requirements of fair representation and competent participation. With host community support, they also help ensure the desirable combination of a licensable site and management concept as well as a balance between compensation, local control and development opportunities. This report provides up-to-date information on experience with local partnership arrangements in 13 countries. The characteristics, advantages and aims of community partnerships are also described in addition to the concept's evolution over the past decade.

Hide / Show Abstract

In 2001, the United Kingdom government and devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland initiated the Managing Radioactive Waste Safely (MRWS) programme [62] with the aim of addressing long-term radioactive waste accumulated from a variety of different nuclear programmes, both civil and defence related.
