 Abstract
This paper presents future directions for spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste management. The successes and failures of siting nuclear waste repository experienced by the United States and other countries are reviewed with the current policy stance. Further, the needs for establishing management policy, considering the high-level radioactive waste produced by the dismantlement, nuclear security concerns, and cost-effectiveness analysis for the total nuclear fuel cycle, are emphasised. Technical discussions are organised into three main topics: interim storage, permanent disposal, and reprocessing. Licensing regimes are also investigated to suggest strategic plans for research and development programmes in the Republic of Korea.
