The Joint Convention on the Safety of Spent Fuel Management and on the Safety of Radioactive Waste Management was adopted in 1997.
Every three years, the Meeting of the Parties to the Convention reviews the extent to which the objectives of the convention have been implemented. For these meetings, the parties submit a report describing the national measures taken. All parties may direct written questions to other parties based on the reports. Germany has made use of the option in the past and has also received inquiries from other parties regarding the German reports, to which it replied in writing.
The seventh review meeting is scheduled for May 2021.
