Detail

In 2008 the Health Protection Agency (HPA) published a consultation document on its proposal for revised advice on radiological protection objectives for the land-based disposal of solid radioactive waste. Views were sought on all aspects of the advice but specific questions were also given for the respondents to consider. A stakeholder workshop was held on 18 April 2008 as part of the consultation process. These comments were used to assist HPA in the development of its advice.

This document summarises the main comments received during the consultation period and the HPA response to them. The revised advice was published by the HPA as Radiological protection objectives for the land-based disposal of solid radioactive wastes (RCE-8).
