This study for the evaluation of the safety of geological disposal systems aimed at identifying requirements for software quality assurance procedures for radioactive waste risk assessment codes and recommending appropriate procedures. The study concentrated on measures that will increase the confidence in repository performance assessments among the wider scientific/engineering community and the lay public. The research covered four stages: analysis of existing procedures and definition of requirements, a case study of the use of existing procedures by contractors engaged in development of assessment tools for the UK Department of the Environment, definition of procedures and implementation of procedures. This report covers all four stages of the work and is supported by a series of appendices that provide more detail on the recommended procedures.
