The RWM packaging specifications define the requirements for waste packages destined for geological disposal
The RWM packaging specifications take the form of a structured hierarchy with each level having a specific purpose. The Generic Waste Package Specification (GWPS) defines the requirements for all waste packages destined for geological disposal, and provides the basis for the definition of the Generic Specifications, which define the standards and specifications for waste packages containing specific categories of waste. The Generic Specifications are used to specify the requirements for the waste packages that could be manufactured using standardised designs of waste container, these being referred to as the Waste Package Specifications (WPS)
Please note that all the requirements from the document ‘Geological disposal – Generic Waste Package Specification’ have now been subsumed into the DSS Part B, verbatim. This document has therefore been superseded.
