Theme Overview n°7 : Safety Case (DOI 10.5281/zenodo.7024678)

Iteratively quantify and demonstrate the safety of the disposal system and inform strategic design decisions. 

The safety case is a critical tool for guiding programme development, integrating and synthesising information to build understanding to inform decisions at each stage of the repository development programme and to guide and prioritise R&D activities.
The safety case is a synthesis of the evidence, arguments and methods that demonstrate that a disposal facility will be safe: safe to construct, safe to operate and safe for people and the environment with no further maintenance once it has been sealed and closed. The safety case addresses the suitability of the site and facility design, the assessment of radiation risks and assurance of the adequacy and quality of all safety related work associated with the disposal facility.
