This book chapter gives an historical overview and socio-political analysis of Belgium's radioactive waste management policy, concepts, regulation and actors (anno 2013). It argues that, the Belgian case of category B & C waste governance displays an ambiguous combination of, on one hand highly specialised advanced and focused research, and on the other hand rather impassive, fragmented and lagging policy making, and that, for high level / long lived radioactive waste, NIRAS-ONDRAF, Belgium’s nuclear waste management organisation, is at present confronted with the limits of ‘implicit’ or ‘de facto’ decision-making.
