Welcome to the Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste

The Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste was established by the Swedish Government in 1992.

The Council’s remit is to investigate and clarify matters relating to nuclear waste and decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities and to advise the Government in these matters. The Council also serves as a knowledge base for other stakeholders such as concerned public authorities, the nuclear power industry, municipalities, NGOs, interested members of the public and the mass media.
