Work Package 1 - SAPIERR-2 (Strategy Action Plan for Implementation of European Regional Repository - Stage 2)

Project ID: 35958


This is the final report of the SAPIERR-2 project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). In this work package, a range of potential organisational and legal forms for the EDO is examined and, a limited set that appears more suitable is proposed as options to be put before potential participants in the organisation to be established. In addition, the requirements on the internal structure and staffing of a repository development organization are discussed. The final decision on legal form and organisation has to be left to the actual partners establishing the EDO as it will depend on the national laws of the partners. Following this introduction, Chapter 2 sets out a framework in which an initial EDO might be established, discusses how this might evolve with time and lays out objectives that it would address. The broad characteristics of an organisation that could address these goals are also examined. Chapter 3 then considers the various specific legal or business forms that the organisation might take. The specific key internal organisational features of a potential multinational disposal entity are discussed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 looks at recent high level recommendations made by an Expert Group of the IAEA (IAEA, 2005) on the requirements on multinational initiatives in the nuclear fuel cycle. Chapter 6 gives examples from the past of major multinational nuclear organisations established to provide enrichment or reprocessing services. The final Chapter 7 assesses which of the possible forms laid out in Chapter 3 are most appropriate for such an entity.
