Abstract

The role of authorities of nuclear safety in national schemes for the management of
radioactive waste is to insure that citizens and the world are shielded from the risks of ionizing
radiation released by the waste. This includes establishing compliance standards and managing
the operations of the waste treatment agency that is responsible for enforcing the plan. The health
criteria for geological disposal are focused on the following concepts: security in detail,
demonstrability and the standards of radiation control established by the International
Commission of Radio-logical Protection (ICRP). The implementation of these standards
includes, in particular, the proper recognition and characterisation of the systems on which the
protection functions performed by the disposal device depend and of the systems that that
influence the efficiency of this method. To create trust in the safety evaluation, therefore,
research and development (R&D) on safety-relevant “thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical
“(THMC) issues are essential. This paper outlines the main THMC processes that may affect the
transport of radionuclides in a disposal network and its surrounding climate, taking into
consideration the complex complexity of such processes. Given that such procedures have a
possible safety effect, it is important to properly define and consider them while designing a
disposal framework to ensure conformity with appropriate safety requirements.
