Assessment of long-term safety
Assessment of long-term safety and preparation of a safety case are essential for the construction and operation of a repository for nuclear waste. The safety case includes a description of the repository system and its long-term development and presents the grounds on which the repository can be deemed safe. Identification of factors influencing the safety and development of the repository and the assessment of their significance are central in the assessment of the facility’s long-term safety. Another important aspect of the process is the preparation of high-quality reports.
Working together with the customer and other experts, our repository engineering professionals can take wide responsibility for the planning, preparing and reporting of safety cases used in the assessment of the long-term safety of geological repositories. In addition, we review and evaluate safety assessments and other safety case supporting documents prepared by other organisations.
We provide our customers with ready-made plans for the preparation of a safety case (in whole or in part), safety case summary reports, and statements of assessment. Our experts take care of the planning of the work, compilation of material and preparation of reports on a schedule that suits you best. As part of our comprehensive services, we prepare reports on the progress of the work and presentations on the safety case.
Our reports meet the highest standards with regard to quality and transparency: they are subjected to independent review whenever so agreed. Our experts have extensive experience in the various stages and areas of repository projects, including site surveys and technical design. Therefore, they have in-depth knowledge of the factors that influence long-term safety and the information required for the safety case. Thanks to their versatile expertise, our repository professionals are able to help the customer to target their resources appropriately. We also have experience in presenting plans related to safety cases and their results to the relevant authorities.
The cornerstone of our service is formed by the broad scope of our expertise, our rapid response and the high quality of our reports, for which we regularly receive positive feedback. Interested? Contact our experts to find out more.
