An NTW report to present this work is under development. 6

  10. 10. NTW Next Steps • NTW is open to further supporting Commission work on examining member state compliance of Article 10 in the Radioactive Waste Directive. • NTW sees that there is still need of an examination of the legal implementation of PIP in member states. • NTW notes that there are parallel initiatives by the World Resources Institute to evaluate Aarhus Convention compliance • NTW is also interested in facilitating discussion on effective PIP on in member states. One way to move forward would be national roundtables. • NTW is already working on national roundtables in the field of Emergency Preparedness and Response (EP&R) 10
