The leaching behaviour of an inactive simulant of the French glass SON68, used as the reference waste form, has been evaluated in the separate environments of salt, granite and clay based on results reported respectively from 6, 10 and 3 laboratories. The results of the CEC-RSST for the geological systems examined have been compiled and assessed by three coordinators and are presented separately in this report. Overall, for the three media involved the test has been carried out with a fair degree of reproducibility and has provided a means of comparing, on a preliminary basis, the performance of a glass waste form in different geological media.
