The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority has been assigned by the government to develop a national plan for the management of all radioactive waste. This report was presented to the government 30 June 2009.
The report has been developed in coordination with representatives from other authorities, trade and industry organizations, operators and other parties interested, forming a joint action group. The views of the joint action group and the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority on existing problems with the management of radioactive waste have formed the basis for the prioritized areas in the report.
For each area, the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority proposes measures which the Authority considers must be implemented in order to overcome the deficiencies in the waste-management system. These measures form the foundation and a direction for society’s continued work with the management of all radioactive waste.
