Major national and international reports In , the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and De- velopment (OECD/NEA) published the report, Long-Term Radiation Protection Objectives for Radioactive Waste Disposal. egulating the Long-term Safety of Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste: Practical Issues and Challenges Regulating the long-term safety of geological disposal of radioactive waste is a key part of making progress on the radioactive waste management issue. . Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Management in the Operation of Nuclear Power Plants If you would like to learn more about the IAEA’s work, sign up for our weekly updates containing our most important news, multimedia and more. ICRP, Radiation protection recommendations as applied to the disposal of long-lived solid radioactive waste. ICRP Publication Ann. ICRP 28 (4). Abstract - ICRP Publication 81 deals with the radiological protection of members of the public following the disposal of long-lived solid radioactive waste using the concentrate and retain.

The Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health (CRPPH) The Radioactive Waste Management Committee (RWMC) the Safety of Radioactive Waste Disposal”, with emphasis on long-term safety issues and the dialogue implementation of a forum for discussion of regulatory knowledge and experience in the field of long term waste management. The objective of this Safety Guide is to provide guidance on the development and implementation of management systems for all phases of radioactive waste disposal facilities and related activities, with a description of how to apply the requirements detailed in The Management System for Facilities and Activities, IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GS-R-3, to the activities and facilities associated with waste disposal. give rise to radiation risks, including nuclear installations, the use of radiation and radioactive sources, the transport of radioactive material and the management of radioactive waste. Safety measures and security measures1 have in common the aim of protecting human life and health and the environment. Safety measures and. • A description of the proposed system for waste management inc luding the facilities and proce dures involved in the handling, treatment, storage and disposal of radioactive waste (Section 4 Management). • Predictions of environmental concentrations of radionuclides and radiation doses to the publicFile Size: 1MB.

IAEA SAFETY RELATED PUBLICATIONS. IAEA SAFETY STANDARDS Under the terms of Article III of its Statute, the IAEA is authorized to establish standards of safety for protection against ionizing radiation and to provide for the application of these standards to peaceful nuclear activities. Radioactivity can be simply defined as that process in which unstable atoms attempt to stabilize themselves by emitting radiation. Using the previous example of hydrogen, when the nucleus consists of two neutrons and one proton (i.e. the isotope tritium), the atom is unstable and therefore radioactive.

It sets out the objective and criteria for the protection of human health and the environment during the operation of geological disposal facilities and after such facilities are closed, and establishes the requirements for ensuring their safety.
