The Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management was established to give recommendations to the Austrian government regarding the final repository of the radioactive waste produced in Austria. The concrete tasks of the council are laid down in time-limited mandates.
During its first mandate the Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management will carry out a survey of the status quo. This includes an inventory of the radioactive waste and an analysis of already existing research. Furthermore it will include an overview of all possible options for the final storage of radioactive waste in Austria, as well as possibilities for cooperation with other countries. The report will also summarise requirements, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for all options. Additionally the Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management shall compile a preliminary flow chart for the disposal of radioactive waste including the most important interim steps and milestones.
The Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management usually meets three times a year. The meetings are not public. After each meeting, a meeting report with the results is published on the website www.entsorgungsbeirat.gv.at.
You can find up-to-date information on the current activities and meeting results of the Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management on its website (www.entsorgungsbeirat.gv.at ).

The participation of the public is crucial for this topic. One of the first steps of the Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management is to compile a concept for the participation of the public.
All results and recommendations of the Austrian Board for Radioactive Waste Management will be summarised in a final report and handed over to the Federal government. The recommendations of the council serve as the foundation for decisions regarding the final repository of radioactive waste in Austria.
