Part of: High Level Radioactive Waste Management 1991


A five year performance assessment program, Project-90 [1], has been concluded by the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate, SKI. The project was defined to develop independent assessment methodologies and resources to be used in the SKI regulatory program. The potential importance for the safety of a high level waste repository of a number of conceptual uncertainties have been investigated. Thereby the need for continued research and development has been demonstrated in several areas. The need for site specific data is emphasized and it is therefore concluded that the site selection program should be followed without unnecessary delays. It is also recognized that continued international cooperation will be very valuable especially in the areas of model validation and further development of standards and criteria and rules for their application.
