Review of Scottish government radioactive waste policy

The Committee of Radioactive Waste's (CoRWM’s) analysis of Scottish government plans for managing higher activity waste (HAW).



The Scottish government finalised its policy on managing HAW in 2010. CoRWM researched and consulted the public throughout the policy’s development.

This paper explains CoRWM’s contribution to the policy and its responses to the various consultations. Comments that CoRWM made during the consultation process that aren’t reflected in the final policy are presented here.

Background information on CoRWM’s involvement with the development of the policy is available on the National Archives website.
