Working In Partnership


Our resource page contains information, help and advice that you might find useful.

In addition you can find information about GDF on these independent  regulators’ websites:

Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR)

the Environment Agency (EA)

Our work is scrutinised by an independent body set up by the government, the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management, (CoRWM).

What is a GDF?

There is international consensus that the safest permanent solution to manage higher activity radioactive waste is geological disposal, which involves putting the waste in a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) beneath several hundred metres of solid rock.

The benefits of a GDF

Having a GDF in the UK will create jobs and guaranteed investment for the host community.

How we work together

The process of finding a site for a GDF is consent-based; communities will be able to work in partnership with us, so that people will have the opportunity to create a future that works for them.
