[en] The following report presents the UK National Profile for use in the International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA) Status and Trends project. The UK produces an inventory of radioactive waste and radioactive materials on a three yearly basis. The UK Inventory provides, in the public domain, the most comprehensive source of information on radioactive waste and radioactive material present in the UK or expected to arise in the future. As part of this process, the UK publishes a separate report which presents inventory information in a format suitable for meeting our international reporting obligations and agreements. This report is publicly available on the UK Radioactive Waste Inventory website: www.nda.gov.uk/ukinventory. The timing of UK Inventory updates aligns with the triennial reporting requirements under the Joint Convention, the European Commission’s Situation Reports on Radioactive Waste and Spent Fuel Management in the EU (the eighth and final Report is expected to be published in 2015) and, from August 2015 onwards, Council Directive 2011/70/Euratom on the responsible and safe management of radioactive waste and spent fuel. In addition to these triennial reporting requirements the UK regularly updates its reports to the IAEA and NEA: • IAEA Country Nuclear Power Profile – includes information on radioactive waste management and the facilities involved in the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle; • NEA National Nuclear Energy Context – the profile includes information and data on the UK’s inventory and radioactive waste management policies and programmes; and • NEA Country Report – the UK’s report covers our National Framework for the Management and Regulation of Radioactive Waste and Decommissioning.
