NDA National LLW Strategy Group
The National Low Level Waste Strategy Group has been established to develop a working partnership between the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, LLW Repository Ltd, Regulators, Stakeholders and LLW Consignors to promote innovation, value for money, and implementation of the waste hierarchy by planning for effective waste disposal solutions. This initiative will support ongoing nuclear operations, the nuclear site decommissioning and remediation programme and LLW management needs of 'non-NDA' commercial organisations. The National Low Level Waste Strategy Group shall serve as a primary point of contact for integration and engagement on LLW innovations, issues, and strategy development.

Strategic Technical Briefs
LLW Repository Ltd's National Strategy Team has prepared a series of Strategic Technical Briefs. The attached compendium represents a chronological compilation of the Briefs prepared during 2008/09. These Briefs were originally developed to provide an improved and common understanding of various technical areas related to low level waste strategy to help inform and underpin the emerging UK Nuclear Industry Low Level Waste Strategy to be prepared by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
The briefs cover a diverse range of topics across Low Level Waste treatment and disposal. Each Brief represents a "snapshot" in time and points to additional information needed to fully understand the issues, inform decision-making for future management solutions, and/or provide new options and opportunities to be pursued by the integrated National Low Level Waste Programme.
