Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document sets out in detail the outcome of the Agency's review of the authorisations for radioactive waste disposal from BNFL Sellafield. The Agency's decisions from the review are included in Section 5 of this document and in a separate Summary Document which also includes a summary of the overall benefits of the proposed decisions. The review has addressed all of the current authorisations, for the discharge of liquid (aqueous) and aerial (gaseous) radioactive wastes and for disposal of solid waste from the Sellafield site. In February 2000 the Agency published its plans for a re-examination of the authorisations granted to BNFL Sellafield under the Radioactive Substances Acts of 1960 and 1993.
