A group of 80 stakeholders, representing many of the groups with which RWM interacts on a regular basis - including government, regulators, academia and the nuclear supply chain - met in Manchester in October 2016. The event was designed to update these groups about progress towards the formal launch of the geological disposal facility (GDF) siting process.
Representatives of government, regulators, the RWM Board and its Executive gave details of developments to date and set out their plans for the coming year. A summary of the Stakeholder Conference is available here.
