In this paper we examine some critical aspects concerning the justification of simplified radioecological models used in safety assessments for geological repositories. We propose a modelling approach for regulatory review of dose and risk calculations for a nuclear waste repository. The SSI modelling tools are applied to explore uncertainties in the size of the contaminant area due to leakage of radionuclides from a damaged nuclear waste canister. We demonstrate that an improved representation of geosphere transport processes will also enhance our understanding of radionuclide migration in the biosphere and provide a better basis for evaluating radiological consequences in the safety assessment.
