The mandate of this Task Group is to prepare a publication, in conjunction with the waste management community that describes in plain language and clarifies the application of the Commission’s recommendations for the protection of the public and workers (Publications 101 & 103) as well as the environment (Publication 124) as applicable to surface and near surface disposal of radioactive waste. The report will be a companion to Publication 122.
The publication will discuss:
The new publication will be drafted as a standalone document in coherence with Publication 122 without unnecessary repetition. The objective is to complement the previous publication.
The publication will consider Publications 46, 77, and 81 in light of the Commission’s current recommendations, taking into account recent international experience.
