This document contains the proceedings of a topical session on The Role of the Biosphere in a Safety Case held during the third Integration Group for the Safety Case (IGSC) meeting in Paris, France on 25 November 2001. The topical session focussed on the recent scientific developments in international programs such as IAEA BIOMASS, EC BIOCLIM, the views of regulators and the strategies being adopted by several implementers for incorporating the biosphere in their safety assessments. This document is a synthesis of the different oral presentations and the various exchanges during the session as well as a compilation of the written contributions. It is intended to provide a state-of-the-art overview of the different manners on how to be involved in the biosphere,  from the research, implementer or regulator body perspectives.
