Important steps are planned to be made during the 1990s in the Swedish program for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high level radioactive wastes. Site selection will be done in a step-by-step process and the plans of the SKB company include a license application the year 2003. The Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate, SKI, develops an independent research and development program with performance assessment as the driving force to support its regulatory role. Within a pilot study, Project-90, performance assessment is applied from a regulator's point of view to illustrate important safety issues. Another important part of the SKI program is to support development of validation strategies in international cooperation, especially within the INTRAVAL project.
