The European Commission, DG XI, has launched an open call for tender for a study into the management and disposal of disused sealed radioactive sources in the European Union. The study will cover the following subjects relating to the management and disposal of sealed radioactive sources: - Estimate of the inventory of the most important disused sealed sources; - Review and analysis of the regulations laid down by national authorities for the control of sealed sources; - Outlining of current management practices; - Examination of the possibility of retrieving non-registered disused sources; - Definition of an improved management scheme at the EU level, with a view to approximating policies of the Member States in this area. The study arises from elements of the 'Community strategy for radioactive waste management' (COM(94) 66 of 2 March 1994). The study must be completed within 18 months from the date of signature of the contract. Tenderers must be actively involved in the production or management of a range of sealed radioactive sources. Tenderers must also have close contacts with the various users of sources in the different Member States. Detailed tender specifications may be obtained from the European Commission. Requests for tender specifications, and completed tenders, should be sent to: European Commission DG XI - Environment, nuclear safety and civil protection Mr. Sinnott Unit A/2 - Budget, finances and contracts 200 rue de la Loi (TRMF 04/87) B-1049 Brussels Fax +32-2-2994449
