Retrievability considerations for geological disposal: CoRWM position paper

CoRWM's current position on retrievability considerations for geological disposal of radioactive waste



This paper summarises the work that led CoRWM to recommend geological disposal for the long term management of higher activity radioactive waste rather than indefinite storage, and confirms that CoRWM is not aware of any analysis and experience that would change this opinion.

The paper will be updated and revised when more information becomes available.
