Abstract

In order to obtain experience on the process of preparing the licence application for an underground repository, the European Commission launched two projects: Building the safety case for a hypothetical underground repository in clay and; Building the safety case for a hypothetical underground repository in crystalline rock. A workshop was held in order to permit a formal presentation of the two studies to other interested parties. The presentations focused on the conclusions of the studies from the viewpoints of both the radioactive waste management agencies and the safety authorities, and the workshop also addressed the problems and inadequacies identified during the studies, with a discussion of the priorities for future work in this field. This report is a summary of the proceedings of the workshop.
