Records for Radioactive Waste Management up to Repository Closure: Managing the Primary Level Information (PLI) Set
IAEA TECDOC Series No.  1398
The objective of this publication is to highlight the importance of the early establishment of a comprehensive records system to manage primary level information (PLI) as an integrated set of information, not merely as a collection of information, throughout all the phases of radioactive waste management. The information presented in this publication will assist Member States in ensuring that waste and repository records, relevant for retention after repository closure, are generated, identified, reviewed and actively managed during pre-closure phases so that they are available and useable at the appropriate time. This publication addresses the establishment and management of the PLI set up to the point of closure of a repository. Specifically, it (1) describes the importance of establishing a coordinated, integrated and well-managed PLI set, (2) provides a basic overview of the components of a PLI set, and (3) provides general guidance on the management of and responsibility for the PLI set.
