What does radioactive waste management mean in ONR?

Within ONR, Inspectors in the radioactive waste management area carry out a wide range of activities at site and strategic level to secure:

Typically inspectors are involved with the assessment of safety submissions concerning arrangements for accumulation, processing, storage, and decommissioning in the development of new facilities and the operation or decommissioning of existing facilities. The timescales over which these activities take place require particular regulatory focus on longer term issues, for example, potential degradation of plant or packages. This work may also involve themed inspections of facilities that contribute to the regular compliance inspections conducted by site inspectors. Joint working with the environment agencies will also be a feature of this work. There are also opportunities to help to develop ONR guidance and international standards, plus contribute to UK policy and national strategy development. The work involves significant team working and interaction with a range of stakeholders.
