The IAEA's programme in support of decommissioning seeks to provide Member States with comprehensive guidance on the planning and execution of safe and effective decommissioning of facilities in which radioactive material has been handled. A considerable literature has been produced on the technological aspects of planning and implementation. In recent years this has been supplemented with information on the organization and management of decommissioning. This report extends the latter area by considering the issues faced in the decommissioning of research reactors and other small facilities, which is often undertaken in situations where the available resources are limited.
