Closed cycle reduces the waste and should be permitted to be followed universally. Reprocessing of used fuel should not be restricted and the users should report the progress to IAEA voluntarily. It could be inspected from time to time.
Recovered actinides are not weapon material though the technology is similar to separation of plutonium for weapons. Cheaper technology can be developed for commercial reasons. Fluorex is one.
