Welcome to CoRWM
Welcome to our second round of public and stakeholder engagement - 4 April to 27 June 2005
The Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) is an independent committee appointed by the UK Government. Our task is to review the options for managing those UK radioactive wastes for which there is no agreed long-term solution. CoRWM has been asked to consult and to make recommendations to the UK Government in 2006. Future decisions and policies will be made by the UK Government.
CoRWM has been asked to work in an open, transparent and inclusive manner, to provide an opportunity for members of the UK public and other key stakeholder groups to participate. We recognise that taking part takes time, and we are committed to taking your comments seriously.
The aims of this public and stakeholder engagement
In this second round of public and stakeholder engagement we would like to hear from you in particular on:
1. our proposed short-list of waste management options;
2. our proposed process and criteria for assessing the short-listed options;
3. issues when combining waste management options; and
4. what matters to you about the way in which the options we will recommend should be implemented.
We also invite comments on this consultation process and on our work more generally. We welcome comments from those who have not contributed so far. We hope you will take part.
