The IAEA has systematic programmes to provide Member States with the guidance services and training necessary for establishing a legal and regulatory framework for the safe use of nuclear technologies including the planning and implementation of decommissioning. The model regulations provided in this publication cover all aspects of the planning conduct and termination of the decommissioning of facilities and management of the associated waste in accordance with the relevant requirements of the IAEA safety standards. They provide a framework for establishing regulatory requirements and conditions of authorization to be incorporated into individual authorizations for the decommissioning of specific facilities. The model regulations also establish criteria to be used for assessing compliance with regulatory requirements. The publication will be of assistance to Member States in appraising the adequacy of their existing regulations and regulatory guides and serves as a reference for those Member States developing regulations for the first time.
