FNCA 2006 Workshop on Radioactive Waste Management

Minutes of the FNCA 2006 - Workshop on
Radioactive Waste Management (RWM)
November 20-24, Beijing, China


The FNCA 2006 Workshop on Radioactive Waste Management was held from November 20 to 24, 2006, at Beijing , China . This Workshop was hosted by the China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) and the China National Nuclear Corp. (CNNC) as the local host organizations and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of Japan , in cooperation with Japan Atomic Industrial Forum, Inc. (JAIF).

Representatives involved in policy making, regulation, operations and R&D on radioactive waste management attended the Workshop from the nine FNCA countries, i.e. Australia , China , Indonesia , Japan , Korea , Malaysia , the Philippines , Thailand , and Viet Nam .

On the first day, Session 1, country reports were presented on present status and progress of radioactive waste management activities in each FNCA country. Summary of each session is attached as Annex-1 to this document.

After Session 1, Poster/Mini-Exhibition was held. This Poster/Mini-Exhibition was successful in enhancing further the understanding of activities in RWM among FNCA countries.

On the second day, sub-meeting s were held on "Conceptual Design of Near Surface Repository", "Waste Treatment and Conditioning for Disposal" and "Management of Medical Waste" as Session 2, 3 and 4 , to promote comprehensive understandings from different viewpoints of FNCA countries.

On the third day, a technical visit to China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE) was undertaken.

On the fourth day, a roundtable discussion on "Interim Report of Decommissioning and Clearance Task" was held as Session 5 to confirm the result of Discussion/Survey Meeting in Australia and Malaysia highlighting the importance of collection of technical data on-site and assessment of the local situation. It was also recognized that common approaches should be investigated to settle scientific and rational regulation in order not to place unnecessary burden on the public and industry of the FNCA region.

In Session 6, a roundtable discussion was held on "Progress of RWM Consolidated Report". It was recognized that the update of the Consolidated Report is important and useful for FNCA countries. The Revised Report will be collected by the end of March 2007 and will be published in 2008.

Finally in Session 7 "RWM 3-Year Work Plan for 2005-2007" under FNCA framework was discussed. Items agreed upon by the Workshop participants on the activities in and after fiscal year 2007 are as follows:

  • 2007 RWM Workshop will be held in Thailand (Nov. 1 8 -23, 2007).
  • The Task Group Activities (Discussion/Survey Meetings) on decommissioning and clearance will be held in Thailand (July29-Aug. 03, 2007) and Viet Nam (Aug. 19-24 2007) in 2007.
  • The candidate of themes on the next Sub Meetings were as follows.
    For example : "Safety assessment of disposal facility", "Site investigation for disposal facility", "Conceptual design of near surface disposal facility" , and " Management of Medical waste " .

3-Year Work Plan is attached as Annex-2(PDF/26KB) to this document.

Participants of this Workshop expressed appreciation to the organizers, i.e. CAEA, CNNC and MEXT, and to the cooperation of JAIF.

These minutes are planned to be submitted to the 8th FNCA Coordinators Meeting for approval, in early February 2007.
