In 2016 Sosny R&D Company prepared Safety Analysis and Environmental Impact Assessment Report for FOTON RTC decommissioning (Tashkent, Uzbekistan) within the full cycle of decommissioning activities following the preparation INN-3M research reactor LSNF (liquid spent nuclear fuel) for shipment and its shipment to Mayak PA in 2014 for reprocessing. The main goals of decommissioning are to dismantle all buildings and facilities on the RTC site, to remove all radioactive waste and industrial waste from the RTC site and to reclaim the land for further unrestricted use (to return the site to the greenfield status). The assessments made in the Safety Analysis showed that annual effective dose limits for the personnel and public will not be exceeded both in case of planned FOTON RTC decommissioning and in case of hypothetical design-basis and beyond design-basis accidents.
