At its March 2007 meeting, the RWMC agreed to start an initiative on reversibility and retrievability (R&R), with a particular focus on policy and regulatory issues. The R&R initiative is being carried out in several phases. The first phase, in 2007-2008, was the compliation of a bilbliography of references on the topic, and the second was a data gathering phase through use of a questionnaire. The questionnaire was issued to NEA member countries in May 2008. A working group was convened and a meeting was held in Toronto, Canada in October 2008 at which the responses were analyzed. This report summarizes the discussions at that meeting and its outcomes, and it provides a progress report on the second phase. Plans for subsequent phases of the project are outlined.
