Radioactive waste (RAW) management policies, regulations and standards

3.1.2 Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and on the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management and other conventions

The safety of RAW is a universal concern, as illustrated by the fact that an international treaty was established in 1997 committed to achieving and maintaining a high level of safety worldwide in the management of RAW and spent nuclear fuel. This is the first and only legally binding international convention on these materials and is based on the IAEA Fundamental

Safety Principles. In 2011 the convention was supported by 58 contracting parties [49].
