In November 1999, the Bulgarian Government and the European Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding, in which the Bulgarian Government undertook a firm commitment to close and decommission Units 1 - 4 of the Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant (KNPP) at the earliest possible dates. The Kozloduy International Decommissioning Support Fund (KIDSF) has been established and is administered by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). One of the purposes of this Fund is to finance, or co-finance preparation and implementation of selected projects, which would require procurement of Goods, Works and Services for modification of existing plant systems, design and construction of decommissioning facilities, including the National Disposal Facility, in an environmentally safe and cost effective manner, definition and procurement of dismantling and decontamination technologies and equipment.

State Enterprise Radioactive Waste SE (SERAW) is responsible for the Kozloduy NPP Units 1-4 Decommissioning Programme and the National Disposal Facility.

A Decommissioning-Repository Project Management Unit (D-R PMU) has been established in order to assist SERAW in the administration and management of the projects notified below.
