European Community legislation and recommendations in the field of radioactive waste management and disposalFunded under: FP2-RADWASTOM 4C
Radiation protection principles are the foundation for national and European Community legislation and recommendations in the field of management and disposal of radioactive waste. Directives set up at Community level, which are to be implemented in the national legislative framework of the member states, are summarised. Policies and strategies in radioactive waste management are of national importance, as well as ensuring safety of all steps of handling, storage and final disposal; recommendations at Community level are developed to assist national authorities and agencies in determining their strategy. Existing recommendations are described and a preview of recommendations under preparation is given.
