This will be achieved through the following objectives:
- Support the development of a comprehensive National Policy Plan for the management of spent nuclear fuel and all radioactive waste arising in Mexico;
- Support the development of a strategy to implement this National Policy Plan, including draft legislation and institutional framework, and
- Development of a strategy at the level of the largest single waste generator to improve the management of the spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste generated at Laguna Verde NPP, based on international best practice, integral cost optimisation and its compliance with the National Policy Plan.
