Abstract

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO) has developed a set of “Siting Factors (SFs)” to guide choice of preliminary investigation areas (PIAs) of HLW disposal. A call for municipalities to volunteer PIAs was initiated, which included published SFs, in December 2002 as the first stage of a stepwise site selection procedure. This paper describes the way that SFs were developed and the outlines how they will be applied.
