Environment Agency one in a million consultation

Dr Rachel Western’s response to the Environment Agency consultation on guidance to the nuclear industry on what criteria they would need to meet to be given permission to dispose of nuclear waste – the so-called Guidance on Requirements for Authorisation (GRA) Consultations – one on deep disposal and one on near-surface disposal. Central to both of these consultation documents is the notion that it’s feasible to generate a reliable calculation of the risk that would arise from the disposal of radioactive waste – and as a result of this ensure that the risks that would arise would be extremely low.
