BEIS published its policy paper on the long-term management of higher activity radioactive waste

Yesterday BEIS published the policy paper, Implementing Geological Disposal - Working with Communities: An updated framework for the long-term management of higher activity radioactive waste.

This document replaced the 2014 white paper and sets out the Government’s overarching policy framework for managing higher activity radioactive waste through implementing geological disposal and sets out our consent-based approach to working in partnership with communities to find a suitable location for a geological disposal facility (GDF).

In response, radioactive waste management (RWM ) can begin our campaign to find a suitable location and willing community to host a Geological Disposal Facility. RWM has also made updates to their website with publications including; Introduction to Geological Disposal, Community Guidance and the outputs from National Geological Screening for a GDF.
