Andra has today set out the way in which it intends to implement the recommendations made by the French nuclear safety authority in its report of 16 May 2013 on the documents issued by Andra since 2009 relating to Project Cigéo.
This report (No. 2013-AV-0179) is the next logical step in the programme of assessments for the proposed deep waste repository. Since work on the project began, following the law of 31 December 1991, all research undertaken by Andra has been regularly reviewed by scientific and safety assessors. Andra uses these reports to steer its work on Project Cigéo with a view to applying for a construction licence in 2015.
