DEFINITION OF STANDARDS OF QUALITY ASSURANCE IN PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT CODES FOR RADIOACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL.

Objective

THE RESEARCH PROJECT WILL PRODUCE A DEFINITION OF AN ACCEPTABLE AND APPROPRIATE SET OF PROCEDURES FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE, VERIFICATION, AND VALIDATION. THESE PROCEDURES WOULD FORM THE BASIS FOR ESTABLISHING UNIFORM STANDARDS FOR RISK ASSESSMENT SOFTWARE, WHICH COULD BE IMPLEMENTED THROUGHOUT THE EUROPEAN RADIOACTIVE WASTE DISPOSAL PROGRAMME.

THE VALUE AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PROCEDURES WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY THEIR PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION AS PART OF THE WORK OF OTHER CONTRACTORS ON THE CEC PACOMA PROJECTS. INCLUDED IN THIS PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION WILL BE THE INTRODUCTION OF SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR AUTOMATING QUALITY ASSURANCE PROCEDURES, WHERE SUCH TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE OR CAN BE DEVELOPED.

THE WORK WILL BE SUBDIVIDED INTO 4 STAGES COVERING RESPECTIVELY, ANALYSIS OF EXISTING PROCEDURES AND DEFINITION OF REQUIREMENTS; A CASE STUDY OF THE USE OF EXISTING PROCEDURES IN THE UK DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT; DEFINITION OF PROCEDURES; AND IMPLEMENTATION OF PROCEDURES.

IN ORDER OT ENSURE THAT THE WORK DONE IS APPROPRIATE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF RISK ASSESSMENT CODES;, REFERENCE WILL BE MADE TO THE OTHER CONTRACTORS FOR THE CEC PACOMA PROJECT.
