'EcoLur' Informational NGO has sent an opinion to RA Ministry for Energy Infrastructures and Natural Resources about the draft resolution 'On Approving Action Plan and Schedule for 2018-2026 of Implementing Provisions of Strategy of Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Safe Management in RA.'

'Respectable Mr. Minister

RA Ministry for Energy Infrastructures and Natural Resources has put into circulation the draft resolution 'On Approving Action Plan and Schedule for 2018-2026 of Implementing Provisions of Strategy of Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Safe Management in RA' on www.e-draft.am website, which requires holding wide-scale public discussions, as it contains environment-related risks in regard to radiation pollution of the environment.

The draft doesn't lay down the procedures of modernization, construction, and operation of the warehouses designed for radioactive wastes and spent nuclear fuel, the procedure for radioactive waste recycling safety, the procedure for public notification and participation in the actions plan.

Reminder: in 2009-2010 the Armenian Government had to refuse from the geological prospecting of the radioactive waste burial in Ararat Region as a result of the complaints of the local population.

We propose to include the procedures of modernization, construction and operation of the warehouses designed for radioactive wastes and spent nuclear fuel, the procedure for radioactive waste recycling safety, the procedure for public notification and participation in the draft resolution 'On Approving Action Plan and Schedule for 2018-2026 of Implementing Provisions of Strategy of Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel Safe Management in RA,' the opinion says.
