The meeting will consider the issues associated with preclosure operational and performance confirmation monitoring and the retrievability of emplaced high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF). Technical specialists will discuss technologies for monitoring subsurface seepage, in-drift environmental conditions, and corrosion of waste packages for HLW and SNF. Representatives from several countries will discuss national policies and approaches to monitoring and retrievability. Specific details on the location and the meeting agenda will be provided as they become available.
