Spørgsmål fra et IAEA-land: How do the first and the third conceptual design of the repository (near surface) consider the 
migration from long lived waste as well as from a small amount of spent fuel?

Svar fra SIS: At this stage of the project some preliminary conceptual modelling of the migration has been performed for all

three designs and for a long range of factors whose values are not known in detail at this stage. The conceptual modelling 

indicates that all concepts can be used. In a latter phase of the project the migration from the repository will be analysed in 

more detail and with more knowledge in general. At that stage one or more of the conceptual designs might prove to be

Q.No 10 



Article 13

Ref. in National Report 


What are the requirements for siting of a facility? 


For a final repository, the selected location must meet the requirements in Denmark's overall policy for the disposal of LILW, which is based on “IAEA, 1995. 

Safety Series no. 111-F. The Principles of Radioactive Waste Management”:

1. Protection of humans and the environment
Radioactive waste shall be managed in such a way as to secure an acceptable level of protection for humans and the environment.

2. Protection beyond national borders
Radioactive waste shall be managed in such a way as to assure that possible effects on human health and the environment beyond national borders will be taken into account.

3. Protection of future generations
Radioactive waste shall be managed in such a way that predicted impacts on the health of future generations will not be greater than relevant levels of impact that are 

acceptable today. Likewise, radioactive waste shall be managed in such a way that it will not impose undue burdens on future generations.

4. The legal framework
Radioactive waste shall be managed within an appropriate national legal framework including clear allocation of responsibilities and provisions for independent regulatory 


Specific requirements for siting a facility has not been established at this stage, but it will be based on the results of the up-coming desktop studies as well as on 

international recommendations, e.g. in IAEA Safety Standards.
