Comments The Court, which has already dedicated several reports to the nuclear power sector, analyses the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle, from reactor exit to disposal, through interim storage and, where applicable, reprocessing. The volume of materials and waste involved, the risks of saturation of certain interim storage facilities, the prospects for filling existing storage facilities, the costs associated with their management and the Cigéo underground disposal project, and the impact of energy policy decisions on the back end of the nuclear fuel cycle are all issues to be addressed in the ongoing public debate on the fifth Radioactive Materials and Waste Management Plan (plan national de gestion des matières et déchets radioactifs). The Court's findings and recommendations aim to increase transparency on this subject and to provide a better understanding of costs.
