Radioactive wastes are produced in the UK as a result of the generation of electricity in nuclear power stations and from the associated production and processing of the nuclear fuel, from the use of radioactive materials in industry, medicine and research, and from military nuclear programmes.
It is essential that all radioactive wastes and materials are safely and appropriately managed in ways that pose no unacceptable risks to people or the environment. This requires a good understanding of the type and nature of the radioactive waste and materials to be managed.
