MOD Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Committees and Working Groups

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Annex 2 of 2001 RWMAC report on MoD radioactive waste practices makes reference to a number of committees and working groups concerned with radiation protection and radioactive waste

"2.1.10. The CESO chairs the Radiation Protection Policy Committee (RPPC) which is the forum in which detailed preparation and promulgation of radiation protection policy is discussed, and which reports to the SHEF Board. RPPC has a permanent Radioactive Waste Working Group (RWWG) which serves as the technical forum for development of MoD policy on radioactive waste management. There is also the Radioactive Waste Information Group (RWIG), an information-gathering and dissemination working group for the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Programme (NNPP), which reports to RWWG."

Dear DSEA-Secretariat Group Mailbox (MULTIUSER),

Thank you very much for the information you provided to me. However it appears part minutes of the RWWG meeting held 7 January 1999 are missing, in particular paras 12-16.

I also asked for papers for the period 1990 to 2000 you have only provided RAWIG and RWWG papers for the period 1999 - 2000

Many thanks Fred Dawson

Yours sincerely,

Fred WP Dawson
