Abstract

Quality assurance (QA) with regard to structures, systems and components is also an important task during the design and operational phase of a repository for the disposal of radioactive waste. The first step is to evaluate the technical design on the basis of a comprehensive safety assessment. The results of this evaluation can then be used in order to classify structures, systems and components into different QA areas. Type and volume of the necessary documentation depend on the relevance of the structures, systems and components to safety. Describes the application of this general procedure including design changes and maintenance aspects during operation, for the planned Konrad waste repository in Germany.
