André Rübel, D.-A. Becker, Eckard Fein et al.

The project PAMINA (Performance Assessment methodologies in application to guide the development of the safety case) was conducted from 2007 to 2009 on the European level to improve and harmonise integrated performance assessment methodologies and tools for various disposal concepts of long-lived radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel in different deep geological environments. The following report presents the contributions of the GRS Braunschweig to the PAMINA project comprising the following topics: − Overview of methodologies, tools and experiences − Treatment of uncertainty in integrated performance assessment  − Use of safety indicators and performance indicators − Relevance of sophisticated approaches in practical cases.
