The Office for Nuclear Regulation and the Environment Agency (collectively called ‘the Regulators’ in this review), have established agreements with the Radioactive Waste Management Directorate (RWMD) to review RWMD’s work towards implementing geological disposal and developing a geological disposal facility.
