Absurdity of Napandee as nuclear waste dump – impossible to meet safety licence?

2 Jan 21, The safety case should have been begun the moment that the government first set eyes on Napandee.
The worst part is that all of the requirements of the safety case are clearly set out in the various publications by ARPANSA based on the codes and standards of IAEA but they have never been enforced
This is why it will become virtually impossible to licence the Napandee facility as IAEA will require an independent and external (overseas) peer review which  should make the government including the minister and ARPANSA shake in their boots
It seems that despite this having been explained to the government it refuses to listen and follow the requirements which will only make it a greater laughing stock internationally
