Licensing and Decommissioning Plan - CND (Co-ordination Network of Decommissioning of Nuclear Installations)

Project ID: 508855


This report has been prepared under the fifth work package of the CND project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Part I, under an individual Member State deals with the overall framework of institutional and legal aspects of nuclear activities. It does not go into the details of individual institutions but gives an overview of how institutional set-up is used to regulate nuclear activities in the Member State. Part II deals with the regulatory aspects of licensing and de-licensing of nuclear installations including requirements for the decommissioning plan as a planned approach to decommissioning. As radioactive waste is an inevitable outcome of any decommissioning operation, regulatory provisions in the management of radioactive waste covering disposal provisions, release criteria (exemption and clearance criteria) are covered here. Part III deals with the regulatory framework and standards for radiological protection amongst the Member States. As decontamination, dismantling, waste treatment and conditioning, waste storage and disposal all involve significant amount of industrial activities, industrial safety and the control of such activities are important and are dealt with in Part IV.
