This report considers the management of spent sealed sources in the European Union. It identifies the quantities of sealed sources entering the European markets annually and considers how Member States currently regulate these sources. In particular, the report considers the waste management systems currently applied to spent sealed sources. The report then moves on to investigate the risks associated with types of sources, disposal practices and identifies an appropriate waste management system based on the risks associated with sources. It concludes with a number of recommendations for further consideration by the Commission of the European Communities.
