This panel session focuses on the progress of deep repository programs, worldwide. While efforts on a deep geological repository for SNF/UNF and HLW in the USA were terminated in 2010, several other repository programs continue to make considerable progress. Panelists will be invited from national repository programs and organizations to report upon the current status and future plans as well as the perceived reasons underlying the success and the failure of components of their respective repository program. This panel will provide a forum for interested parties to present, exchange, and take advantage of, as appropriate, repository progress, challenges, concepts/designs and other lessons learned around the world, including site characterization, site selection, research and development, licensing, construction, operation, and public acceptance and participation.
