Italy's Societa Gestione Impianti Nucleari SpA (Sogin) on 15 March submitted to the Ministry of Ecological Transition (MET) its proposal for the National Charter of Eligible Areas (CNAI) to host a national repository for radioactive waste and a technological park. This followed a year of public consultation.   MET, having acquired the technical opinion of the National Inspectorate for Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection (ISIN), must now approve the Charter with its own decree, in agreement with the Ministry of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility. The map will then be published on the websites of Sogin, the two Ministries and ISIN.
