The Tentative Findings of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission are an interim step in the Commission’s process before the completion of the report in May 2016. They reflect the Commission’s current thinking on the issues it considers to be important and the most cogent evidence relevant to them. They do not contain recommendations.
They are shared with the community as part of the Commission’s commitment to conducting an open process with access to the written submissions, oral evidence and material it considered to be significant.
Comment is sought on the Tentative Findings to better inform and refine the Commission’s thinking before it finalises its findings and makes recommendations.
Commissioner Kevin Scarce released the Tentative Findings document in 15 February, 2016 ahead of a five-week feedback period. The closing date for responses is 5pm, Friday, March 18, 2016. The Commission’s final report will be delivered on 6 May 2016.
The Commission has begun a five-week feedback period, commencing with a week of public presentations to be held across the State. The Commission will visit South Australian cities and towns including Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Mt Gambier, Ceduna, Renmark, Oak Valley and Umuwa. Full meeting details here.
