Towards a harmonised application of the international regulatory framework in waste management and decommissioning


The objective of this action is to address benefits and advantages of providing solutions for obstacles to a common regulatory framework in waste management and decommissioning, providing a basis for improving harmonisation. This will support implementation of the requirements of a high level of nuclear safety and safe management of spent fuel and radioactive waste

The action should reinforce the activities of the European Joint Programme EURAD, PREDIS but also the SHARE project (StakeHolder-based Analysis of REsearch for Decommissioning, which will provide, by the end of 2021, a Strategic Research Agenda and an inclusive roadmap), including development and knowledge and competence transfer across Member States' national programmes. One of the lessons learned in decommissioning and waste management is that the efficiency of a technological development depends not only on the techniques used or an operator's ability but also on regulatory aspects, and other societal dimensions.
