Decommissioning brings to closure, or terminates, the mission or useful life of a radiological or nuclear facility. The owner or licensee normally decides when a facility is to permanently cease operations. It must then show that a proposed decommissioning project plan can be conducted safely, and that at completion the facility will comply with regulatory requirements. This chapter presents a road map of the decommissioning process, highlighting the major issues to address in planning, implementing, and completing a project, and including references for further detail.
