Committee for Radioactive Waste Management
The Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) is an independent committee appointed by the UK Government, whose task is to review the options for managing radioactive wastes for which there is "no agreed long-term solution".
It was set up in November 2003 after a public consultation called "Managing Radioactive Waste Safely" had been launched by the Government in September 2001. The Committee is chaired by Gordon MacKerron, Director, Sussex Energy Group, SPRU, University of Sussex.
