WP6 Safety case relevance

WP6 Safety case relevance regroups the Waste Management Organisations (WMOs) participating in CAST with the aim of:

  • combining the results of WP 2 - 5 to deliver sound scientific basis and safety relevant information;
  • considering the CAST results in the context of safety cases;
  • identifying commonalities and differences between national programmes and;
  • providing conclusions and recommendations over possible future studies and orientations to waste management organisations. WP6 will act as an integration exercise to ensure that the results from WP2 to 5 are as relevant to the safety cases for the end-users, the WMOs, as possible.

Published and expected reports are:

  1. C14 in safety assessments
  2. Knowlegde supporing safety assessments of 14C
  3. Interim Progress report WP6
  4. Final report WP6
