To be able to carry out review functions regulatory authorities must be able to make critical evaluations of proponent's performance assessment (PA) cases. In Sweden the Swedish Radiation Protection Authority (SSI) aims to have in place its own suite of PA tools. These will be used to address the forthcoming PAs submitted by the Swedish Nuclear Waste Management Company (SKB) for a geological repository for spent fuel (2010). This paper looks at the role and application of the regulator's models to important features of current modelling in SKB 's latest PAs. The SSI modelling tools are applied to demonstrate a possible size of the contaminant area due to leakage of radionuclides from a damaged canister. An improved representation of these processes will enhance our understanding of biosphere functions and provide a better basis for evaluating radiological consequences in the safety assessment.
