A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed on 5 September by the Korea Radioactive Waste Agency (KORAD) and the Korean Radioactive Waste Society (KRS) for cooperation in decommissioning and waste management.

The MOU covers management of low, intermediate and high-level radioactive waste, the training of decommissioning personnel, and raising public awareness.

KORAD, established in January 2009 as South Korea's national agency for radioactive waste management, is responsible for the transportation, storage, treatment and disposal of waste, as well as site selection, construction, operation and post-closure management of the waste management facility. It reports to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. KRS, set up in 2003, has a membership of more than 2000 experts in used fuel and radioactive waste management.
