The National Radioactive Waste Management Facility

13 November 2015

The Minister for Resources, Energy and Northern Australia has announced a short list of potential sites for the location of a National Radioactive Waste Management Facility. The short list of six sites comes after a call for voluntary nominations from landholders which closed on 5 May 2015.

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science provides information on the nomination and site selection process, as well as the project phases.

ARPANSA has two roles in relation to this facility: the provision of expert advice; and the regulation and licensing of the proposed facility.

More information about the role ARPANSA plays can be found on our website.

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science have published a media release announcing the proposed sites.
