National Monitoring Contexts

The National Monitoring Contexts - Summary Report and its companion document National Monitoring Contexts – Country Annexes on work conducted under project Task 1.1 are published on 18.03.2011. The objectives are: 

  • To provide each project partner with the opportunity to present background information on the national context likely to influence repository system monitoring.
  • To structure specific elements of national monitoring contexts in a set of societal and physical boundary conditions which may influence some of the upstream decisions for geologic repository monitoring.
  • To develop an overview of these boundary conditions.
  • To discuss how these boundary conditions may influence specific, national decisions on development and implementation of monitoring programmes.
  • To provide a basis for a shared view on the development and implementation of a monitoring programme, including the required flexibility for its application in various national monitoring contexts.
