Statement on geological disposal

The Committee on Radioactive Waste Management's (CoRWM's) recommendations on geological waste disposal.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



CoRWM has restated its original recommendations to government that:

  • geological disposal is the long-term answer to managing waste
  • high quality interim storage including provision for delay in the disposal is necessary
  • allowance should be made for alternative solutions if research develops these options
