At present the main radwaste generator is Cernavoda NPP with 2 × 700 MW units in operation. For the year 2016, the Plant is predicted to have 4 units in operation. The National Strategy for radioactive waste management was drafted by National Agency for Radioactive Waste (ANDRAD), the jurisdictional authority for coordinating spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste management in Romania. Last year, the Government of Romania established that a new nuclear power plant would be build, so, with this future operational NPP, the quantity of waste will increase from the today evaluations. Therefore the national strategy for radioactive waste management should be reviewed accordingly. The paper presents some preliminary results obtained upon the R&D Programs related to the radioactive waste disposal facilities.
