Dear Committee on Radioactive Waste Management,

I am disappointed that you do not take your legal obligations under the 2004 Regulations seriously.

In this instance, I have elected (rather than to pursue proceedings) to WITHDRAW this request.

Yours faithfully,

Darryl J Lee (Mr.)

Olutade Moji (Office for Nuclear Development),

Dear Mr Lee,

Apologises for the late response. As we do not hold the information you requested under the FOI act, here is our response below;

Thank you for your email of 13th February 2016, where you requested the following information on the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) in respect to;
"CoRWM Document (3198) reference page 6 of 23 under the sub-heading of: "Priorities 2015-2016" on the statement: "To provide advice to DECC and other Sponsors on the transition of the RWM to an effective GDF “Delivery Organisation."

You have requested clarification on;

a) Who the "Other Sponsors" are as referred to in the statement above
b) What an "effective GDF Delivery Organisation is" ?
c) Does a list of potential GDF Delivery Organisations exist? And if so, a disclosure of said list.

In response;
A. The “Other Sponsors” referred to in this document are the Governments of the Devolved Administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

B. An effective GDF delivery organisation is the organisation that will be responsible for the siting, design, construction, commissioning, operation and closure of the geological disposal facility for higher activity radioactive waste.

C. There is not a list of potential GDF Delivery Organisations. Radioactive Waste Management Limited (RWM), a subsidiary of the NDA, is the designated organisation for the delivery of a GDF. Please visit the RWM website for more information on its role as a GDF delivery organisation. https://www.nda.gov.uk/rwm/what-we-do/

We hope you find these information useful.

Yours sincerely,
Mojisola Olutade
