In many countries throughout the European
Community (EC) there are national projects to
address the safe management of radioactive wastes
which arise from activities such as nuclear energy
generation, medical treatments and industrial research
programmes. Any long-lived intermediate level (ILW)
and high-level (HLW) wastes so generated cannot be
safely disposed to near-surface facilities with low-level
and short-lived wastes. Therefore waste management
agencies and government appointed regulatory bodies
are considering either disposal or retrievable storage in
deep geological formations. The fundamental purpose
of such management options is to isolate the wastes
over very long timescales and hence to protect humans
and the surface environment from harmful radiological
