Radioactive Waste Management Hazardous Waste Management Gaynor W. Dawson and Basil W. Mercer This book addresses major technical areas associated with the safe management of hazardous waste, and covers a broad spectrum of environmental, engineering, and administrative by: This reviews sources of radioactive waste and introduces radioactive decay and radiation shielding calculations. It covers technical and regulatory aspects of waste management with discussion questions at the end of each chapter to provide an opportunity to explore the many facets of waste management issues.3/5(1). A comprehensive guide to radioactive waste management. Presents an integrated review of the historical, regulatory, environmental, and technological aspects of the controversial topic. Describes waste forms and their parameters, programmatic measures, safety concerns and controls, and the technology for managing the various waste forms from. The publication is suitable for radioactive waste managers and regulators, and decision making organizations in both governmental and private sectors. Currently, the report is targeted at readers with a good knowledge of radioactive waste management. The plan is to have the publication evolve to serve a broader audience using.

The conference, of which this publication is the proceedings, is the latest in the series organized by the IAEA on the subject of radioactive waste safety. Demonstrating the safety of radioactive waste disposal remains a challenging issue, from both technical and sociopolitical perspectives, and is receiving increasing scrutiny throughout the world. In the field of radioactive waste management, the Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and on the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management (the Joint Convention) is acknowledged as an important mechanism for promoting and encouraging the safety of radioactive waste disposal worldwide. The IAEA’s safety services encompass design, siting and engineering safety, operational safety, radiation safety, safe transport of radioactive material and safe management of radioactive waste, as well as governmental organization, regulatory matters and safety culture in organizations. operational safety, radiation safety, safe transport of radioactive material and safe management of radioactive waste, as well as governmental organization, regulatory matters and safety culture in or ganizations. These safety services assist Member States in the application of the standards and enable valuable experience and insights to be.

The objective of this Safety Guide is to provide guidance on the development and implementation of management systems for all phases of radioactive waste disposal facilities and related activities, with a description of how to apply the requirements detailed in The Management System for Facilities and Activities, IAEA Safety Standards Series No. GS-R-3, to the activities and facilities associated with waste disposal. The IAEA safety standards are designed to facilitate this, and I encourage all Member States to make use of them.” Yukiya Amano Director General Safety through international standards IAEA Safety Standards Disposal of Radioactive Waste for protecting people and the environment No. SSR-5 Specific Safety Requirements IAEA Safety Standards. This publication establishes requirements applicable to all types of radioactive waste disposal facilities. It is linked to the fundamental safety principles for each disposal option and establishes a set of strategic requirements that must be in place before facilities are developed.
