The purpose of the conference is to highlight the importance of an integrated long term approach towards the management of radioactive waste and spent fuel, to foster information exchange between Member States, and to provide inputs that will promote further harmonization of safety in the fields of predisposal management and disposal of radioactive waste. The conference will serve as a forum for discussing past experiences and future challenges. Furthermore, it will seek to identify Member States’ needs in order to assist them — through specific activities under future IAEA programmes in this area — to develop and implement safe solutions for the management of their entire radioactive waste inventory.

The conference will address all aspects of predisposal management and disposal of radioactive waste and spent fuel, including waste arising from accidental situations. The management of radioactive waste and residues from mining activities, as well as the control of discharges from nuclear facilities and activities, are, however, outside of its scope.
