Nagra will make its provisional site selection around the year 2022, when it will be known where the repository or repositories are expected to be constructed.

Definitive site selection and the decision of the Federal Council on the general licence – and with this the end of the third stage of the Sectoral Plan process - is expected for 2029. 

The decision of the Federal Council on the general licence has to be approved by Parliament and is subject to an optional national referendum (around 2031).

The repository for low- and intermediate-level waste is expected to start operation around 2050 and the high-level waste repository around 2060.
