“MKG, the Swedish non-governmental office for nuclear waste review, is a non-governmental environmental organization established in 2004 to work specifically with nuclear waste issues.”
From their site: “The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) is responsible for designing and implementing Canada's plan for the safe, long-term management of used nuclear fuel.” Note that the NWMO is not an arms-length public agency – it is a group of nuclear power companies.
