It will be crucial to the safety of radioactive waste repositories properly to backfill and seal any openings or disturbances created during the characterisation and development of a repository, to prevent mobile groundwater from coming into contact prematurely with waste canisters. These proceedings present the results of a workshop organised to review the progress of in situ investigations of repository sealing technology for boreholes, shafts, fractures and disturbed zones. Recommendations are made on priorities for further investigations of sealing technology in support of repository design and long-term performance assessments.
