2011:07 Workshop on Regulatory Review and Safety Assessment Issues in Repository Licensing

The Swedish Radiation safety Authority (SSM) is currently developing project plans for the review of the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co’s (SKB) planned license application for a spent nuclear fuel repository in Forsmark and an encapsulation plant in Oskarshamn. In support of the development of these project plans, SSM has carried out several international workshops during 2010 on detailed technical review issues including radionuclide transport, earthquakes, properties of the spent fuel and on copper corrosion and buffer erosion. The workshop reported here addresses general safety assessment issues and review strategy.
