Each day thousands of shipments of radioactive materials are transported around the world.
Worldwide, many nuclear reactors, fuel fabrication facilities and reprocessing sites are moving from operations into decommissioning. Effectively dealing with this phase of the life cycle requires developing and adopting appropriate waste packaging solutions.
Internationally, waste producers have recognized that there is a potential beneﬁt from having new optimized regulatory requirements for packaging certain waste items from decommissioning activities.
This Fact Sheet explores why a new package and changes to the regulations are needed, as well as the benefits of this initiative.
