Radioactive waste policy published

Ministers have published a strategy for dealing with low-level radioactive waste from the non-nuclear industries.

Aimed at waste planning bodies, regulators and producers of low level radioactive waste from the non-nuclear industries, the document encourages the disposal of such waste locally where suitable permitted facilities exist.

It complements an existing strategy on LLW from the nuclear industries which was published by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority in 2009.

The new strategy is available to download from the DECC website.
