This publication arises from the results of two projects to assist Member States in understanding and developing safety cases for near-surface radioactive waste disposal facilities. The objective of the publication is to give detailed information on the contents of safety cases for radioactive waste disposal and the types of arguments that may be included. It is written for technical experts preparing a safety case, and decision makers in the regulatory body and government. The publication outlines the key uses and aspects of the safety case, its evolution in parallel with that of the disposal facility, the key decision steps in the development of the waste disposal facility, the components of the safety case, their place in the Matrix of Arguments for a Safety Case (the MASC matrix), and a detailed description of the development of sample arguments that might be included in a safety case for each of two hypothetical radioactive waste disposal facilities.

Radioactive Waste Management, Radioactive Waste Disposal, Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Facilities, Near Surface Disposal, Member States, Safety Cases, Disposal Facilities, Regulatory Bodies, Government, Evaluation, Matrix of Arguments, MASC Matrix, Samples, PRISM, Decision Making, Planning, Implementation, Disposal Programme, Safety Measures, Information, Concepts, Licensing, Safety Case Arguments, Lessons Learned, Safety Assessment, Infrastructure, Safety Standards, Site Selection, Construction, Design
