The nuSTORM facility will provide \nu_e and \nu_\mu beams from the
decay of low energy muons confined within a storage ring. The
instrumentation of the ring, combined with the excellent knowledge of
muon decay, will make it possible to determine the neutrino flux at
the %-level or better. The neutrino and anti-neutrino event rates are
such that the nuSTORM facility serving a suite of near detectors will
be able to measure \nu_eN and \nu_\muN cross sections with the %-level
precision required to allow the next generation of long-baseline
neutrino-oscillation experiments to fulfil their potential. By
delivering precise cross section measurements with a pure weak probe
nuSTORM may have the potential to make measurements important to
understanding the physics of nucleii. The precise knowledge of the
initial neutrino flux also makes it possible to deliver uniquely
sensitive sterile-neutrino searches. The concept for the nuSTORM
facility will be presented together with an evaluation of its
performance. The status of the planned consideration of nuSTORM at
CERN in the context of the Physics Beyond Colliders workshop will be
