Further to its support of a new nuclear power station at Wylfa Newydd on Anglesey the Welsh Government has announced its intention to introduce a review of its existing waste policy for higher activity radioactive waste (“HAW”). It published a call for evidence on reviewing its policy on HAW and spent fuel disposal in April 2014 and asked the independent Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) to analyse and advise on the responses. The consultation is available at WG: Consultation on the review of the existing policy on disposal of higher activity radioactive waste (October 2014).

Prospect Law and Prospect Energy advise on nuclear power programmes at an international level and provide legal services and planning advice for the nuclear industry.
