ENGIE Electrabel works together with ONDRAF/NIRAS and the FANC on the technical processes and modalities to achieve efficient transfer of the radioactive waste (RaW: Radioactive Waste) produced and to be produced. 
This includes both the operational waste from operation and the waste from decommissioning of the nuclear power plants.
 These activities are managed on the ENGIE Electrabel side in the Fleet department under the direction of the CDO (Chief Decommisoning Officer) which covers both the "relations" with ONDRAF/NIRAS (NDRaW department = Nuclear Decommisiong and Rad Waste) and the technical decommissioning project (D&D program) itself.


The NDRaW department is responsible for the contractual, technical and financial management of all radioactive waste flows resulting from ENGIE Electrabel's operations, cessation and dismantling activities. This management fits within the legal and regulatory framework with the highest priority for nuclear safety and with great attention to efficiency.
ONDRAF/NIRAS' surface disposal project for cat A waste is in the final stages of obtaining its nuclear operating license. This entails increasing coordination and consultation to define the technical and financial modalities for collection, transfer, temporary storage and final disposal of the RaW from ENGIE Electrabel.
 For ENGIE Electrabel as the largest Belgian RaW producer, this is a crucial issue.
