Work Package 2 - 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). The intention of this report is to look at the organisational structures suggested for an EDO in work package 1, place these into various scenarios of how an EDO might interact with a host country and other major stakeholders and then to: identify the kinds of responsibilities to be borne throughout the long development process (legal, financial, ethical, etc.); identify the various bodies that together must bear the responsibilities and carry the financial liabilities associated with a multinational or regional repository programme; propose an option or options for the allocation of responsibilities and financial liability; discuss which aspects are peculiar to multinational projects and which are also common to national waste management programmes. In doing this, there is a close link with the financing models for an EDO that are developed in work package 3 and the reader should consider the report on economic aspects in parallel with the present report. The intention is to review the actions which may have to be taken during and after the operation of a multinational disposal facility, to consider who shares responsibility for such actions and to look at how responsibilities can best be allocated to ensure that they will be fulfilled in a way which protects future generations from burdens, be it physical or financial.
