Radioactive Waste Management Programmes in OECD/NEA Member Countries

Information on the waste management and decommissioning programmes of individual member countries of the NEA are presented in country profiles and country reports. Both documents aim to provide topical descriptions of national situations according to a common template; they include information about the sources, types and quantities of waste as well as how and by whom they are managed. Country profiles provide abridged information that allows for rapid familiarisation with the country situation; country reports provide detailed information for in-depth understanding. Both documents are subject to regular updates.
