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.

The fundamental safety objective — to protect people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation — applies to all circumstances that give rise to radiation risks. The safety principles are applicable, as relevant, throughout the entire lifetime of all facilities and activities, existing and new, utilized for peaceful purposes, and to protective actions to reduce existing radiation risks.

Policy Objectives To ensure that Ionizing Radiation Sources are used by competent licensed users with appropriate radiation protection measures are used only according to their purpose are adequately protected after service lifetime expiration will be transfer to specialized radwaste management enterprises for safe storage/disposal.

An Introduction to Nuclear Waste Immobilisation, Third Edition examines nuclear waste issues, including natural levels of radionuclides in the environment, the geological disposal of waste-forms, and their long-term behavior. It covers all-important aspects of processing and immobilization, including nuclear decay, regulations, new technologies.

Thus, the Radioactive Waste Management Committee has considered the concept as a possibility for the long-term future, and wishes to be kept informed on developments.

The Nuclear Science Committee has already made plans to examine some new scientific questions raised by transmutation, while the Nuclear Development Committee is carrying out a. Principles of Radioactive Waste Management, Safety Series No.

Radioactive Waste Disposal: An Environmental Perspective This booklet describes the different categories of waste, discusses disposal practices for each type and describes the way they are regulated.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. The objective of radioactive waste management is discussed and the internationally accepted International Atomic Energy Agency fundamental safety principles and principles of radioactive waste management are explained. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development environmental and ethical bases of geological disposal are given.

On this basis, financing of radioactive waste disposal may take different forms, such as advance contributions from waste producers according to waste production and expenditure estimates, provisional or final fees at the time of waste delivery, fees on nuclear electricity production, and contribution to waste management funds.

(b) Waste classification and near-surface disposal. (1) Disposal of radioactive waste in near-surface disposal facilities has the following safety objectives: protection of the general population from releases of radioactivity, protection of individuals from inadvertent intrusion, and protection of individuals during operations.

organisations as especially intended for high level radioactive waste or spent fuel where long term isolation and containment is required. Geological disposal may also be used for other long-lived wastes since a similar need for long term protection applies.

Long-time nuclear waste warning messages are intended to deter human intrusion at nuclear waste repositories in the far future, within or above the order of magnitude of 10, years.
