Various measures and schemes are in place in each country to ensure that the decommissioning funds are accumulated in a timely fashion to be available when expenses will occur. References 1.

    The expenses associated with decommissioning of nuclear facilities shall be paid from the funds established pursuant to Section If the money in the funds is insufficient for payment of all decommissioning costs, the commission or the board shall determine whether the costs incurred in excess of the money in the funds are reasonable in.

    Nuclear decommissioning is the process whereby a nuclear facility is dismantled to the point that it no longer requires measures for radiation protection. The presence of radioactive material necessitates processes that are potentially occupationally hazardous, expensive, time-intensive, and present environmental risks that must be addressed to ensure radioactive materials are either.
