The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Expert Group on Waste Inventorying and Reporting Methodology (EGIRM) brought together senior representatives of national organisations with a broad knowledge of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management issues resulting from their work as implementers, regulators and research and development experts, or policymakers. The expert group was established by the NEA Radioactive Waste Management Committee (RWMC) in 2014 to develop a methodology that would ensure consistency of national radioactive waste inventory data presented in a common scheme and provide the best achievable comparability of data in frameworks of international programmes and initiatives. The need to develop such a methodology arose in the context of a joint initiative of three organisations – the NEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the European Commission (EC) – entitled the "Status and Trends Project on Spent Fuel and Radioactive Waste".
The EGIRM was mandated to review the radioactive waste and spent fuel management strategies of NEA member countries with the goal of developing a common presenting format for national inventory data with relevance to radioactive waste and spent fuel management strategies that have been established in member countries.
