NDA Welcomes Publication of Government’s Consultation Paper
25 June 2007
The NDA welcomes the publication of the consultation paper "Managing Radioactive Waste Safely (MRWS): A framework for implementing geological disposal".
We see this as an important consultation paper which sets out a framework for the long-term management of higher activity wastes.
Government has previously explained that planning and developing geological disposal will be based on the following four pillars:
- partnerships with potential host communities that allow issues and opportunities to be fully discussed and evaluated;
- implementation by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), with clear responsibilities and accountabilities;
- strong independent regulation by the statutory regulators, the Health and Safety Executive, the environment agencies and the Office for Civil Nuclear Security; and
- independent scrutiny and advice to Government by a reconstituted CoRWM, carrying forward the original committee's commitment to openness and transparency.
The NDA notes the announcement from the Scottish Government that they do not endorse the consultation paper and we will need to carefully consider this. We will continue to work constructively with members of the Scottish Executive to work out the implications of this decision.
