Activity Acronym:NCM Waste

Abstract:This report is the final deliverable of a project commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers for NKS to assess the current situation in the Nordic countries with respect to management of non-nuclear radioactive waste. The ultimate goal was to examine if any needs could be identified for enhanced Nordic cooperation within the area. The radiation safety authorities in the Nordic countries were all asked to produce a current status report including thoughts about possible needs for enhanced cooperation. The material was presented and discussed at a meeting in Copenhagen of representatives of NKS and the Nordic authorities, and a number of ideas were derived with the perspective of possible further cooperation between the Nordic countries on the regulatory level, whereas more scientific based new work ideas were thought to be suited for an activity application for the next NKS call for proposals, in the autumn of 2015.
Keywords:Radioactive waste, non-nuclear, waste management, NORM, Nordic cooperation, orphan sources, sealed sources, scrap metal sources, geological disposal.
