Abstract: Recognising the importance of safety of radioactive waste management worldwide, the European Union is providing significant technical support to regulatory authorities and operating organisations dealing with radioactive waste management in neighbouring and other countries. This support has been implemented through European Commission mechanisms such as the Technical Assistance to the Commonwealth of Independent States - TACIS, the Instrument for Nuclear Safety Cooperation - INSC and the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance. This paper summarises the main TACIS and INSC activities on improving safety measures for safe disposal of high level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel. It also outlines the way forward and the scope and objectives of the INSC follow-up instrument envisaged for the 2014-2020 period.
