This report of the NEA Working Group on Approaches and Methods for Integrating Geological Information in the Safety Case (AMIGO) summarizes the responses from 17 AMIGO participants, including both implementing organizations and regulatory agencies, to a questionnaire that examined the current status and role of geoscience in contributing to a repository safety case. It presents examples of important contributions, discusses challenges that include effective communication of the science and the collaborative effort of different geoscience disciplines, and explores where geoscience might play a further role in studies of long-term safety.
