Present and expected radioactive waste generation is put in perspective in the present paper, notably by comparison with industrial toxic waste. The technical options and current developments for radioactive waste processing and disposal are summarised; various disposal options, which meet the objective of assuring people's safety, are available for decision makers at the political level. Regulatory and technical systems, based on basic principles accepted worldwide, which ensure the implementation of the safety objective, are also summarised.
