It is my honour and great pleasure to present to you the 2019/2020 NRWDI Annual Report. At the start of the 2019/20 financial year we couldn’t have anticipated the scale of the challenges that were to face the world amidst the 2020 international health pandemic. NRWDI responded to the global COVID-19 crisis with professionalism and empathy. Our staff have shown themselves to be a very flexible, adaptable, and extraordinarily dedicated group of people in these unknown and uncertain times.

I am immensely proud to lead NRWDI, who is committed to deliver technically sound, socially acceptable, environmentally responsible, economically feasible, sustainable and publicly acceptable solutions for the long term management and disposal of all radioactive waste classes on a national basis in a safe and secure manner that protects people and the environment. 

I am privileged to be entrusted with the accountability and responsibility for an organisation whose work will affect not only the current generation, but also those to come. We will therefore ensure that no undue burden is placed on future generations due to our past, present and future involvement in nuclear science and technology applications.
