This is the report of an international conference, organised by the CEC, to present results achieved during the last five years of its programme on the decommissioning of nuclear power plants. The conference was limited to invited papers, presented by scientists involved in European Community contract studies; but scientists from outside the EC participated in the conference. The topics covered are: characterization of the radioactivity associated with nuclear power plants that have been finally shut down; implications of maintaining shut-down nuclear power plants for long periods before dismantling; decontamination of metal and concrete surfaces for decommissioning purposes; dismantling of nuclear power plant components and structures; conditioning and packaging of the radioactive waste arising from the dismantling; systems for remotely controlled decommissioning operations; aspects related to the classification of solid decommissioning waste, namely measurement of very low level radioactivity and evaluation of radiological consequences; nuclear power plant design features facilitating decommissioning; experience with industrial scale decommissioning operation. The proceedings also report the discussions on the papers as well as the results of two technical panels and of the concluding panel.
