Abstract

In 1985 the CEC embarked on the third five-year programme on radioactive waste management and disposal. The programme subdivides in a direct action, which is carried out in the Community's own laboratories, and in an indirect, shared cost action, of which the R&D work is carried out in the national laboratories of the Member States. In parallel a programme is pursued on the decommissioning of nuclear power stations. With regard to polymer encapsulated wastes the CEC promotes some activities in the field of the development of immobilization processes and of waste form characterization. During the second programme the Commission launched a joint characterization programme for low and medium level waste forms. A series of 10 reference materials, constituting the most advanced waste forms or those already produced on an industrial scale have been selected. 12 laboratories participated in the programme.
