The Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste is a scientific committee tasked to give advice to the Government for its decision on the final disposal nuclear waste. The Council should also be a knowledge resource for politicians and journalists.
The Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste strive to ensure that the arguments in the crucial issues in the nuclear waste field are comprehensible and that the information is easily accessible.
We would like to clarify where we stand:
· The Council does not take a stand for or against nuclear power.
· The Council believes that long-term safety is the most important aspect in the choice of method for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel.
· The Council believes that our generation should take full responsibility for the final repository, but we should not deprive future generations of their opportunities to take responsibility. The Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste has therefore formulated a principle for the final repository, called the KASAM principle:
A final repository should be designed to render controls and corrective measures unnecessary, but not impossible.
