New nuclear industry code of practice

To support the UK Nuclear Industry National Low Level Waste Strategy, the LLW Repository Ltd and the EARWG are working together to further share waste management good and best practices in the nuclear industry.

The new Code of Practice has been produced by the Nuclear Industry and endorsed by the Safety Directors’ Forum. It is aimed at those responsible for formulating organisational policy and developing working level procedures, as well as practitioners of BAT and Best Practicable Means (BPM). The Code of Practice is not prescriptive but offers guidance on compliance with regulatory requirements and approaches.
