C&M Preparations

The Care and Maintenance (C&M) preparations phase focuses on decommissioning and deplanting buildings and retrieving, treating and processing any waste in order to ready the site for C&M.

This phase also ensures that any waste is moved to modern stores which are maintained. The types of buildings that will remain on site typically include reactor safestores, intermediate level waste stores or interim storage facilities; plus any additional structures that will be removed at final site clearance.
