In the report such amendments to the relevant laws, regulations and administrative decisions are drafted as would permit Finland to achieve the goal set by the Council of State in its energy policy statement to the Parliament in the autumn 1993, i.e. that Finland would, in future, have to assume the responsibility for all nuclear wastes produced in its own territory. Also was studied what effects the new practice would have on the waste management safety and on the economy of the nation and the companies involved. the changed operational policy would in practice be limited to concern the Loviisa NPP whose spent nuclear fuel has so far been reexported to Russia, the town of Chelyabinsk for reprocessing. Termination of this practice would entail a need to dispose of all spent fuel permanently in Finnish bedrock. (1 fig., 2 tabs.).
