In Germany radioactive waste with negligible heat generation, i.e. LLW and ILW, is planned to be disposed of in the Konrad repository. The construction and operation of this disposal mine necessitates quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) programmes focusing on the above‐ground and underground facilities as well as on the waste packages to be disposed of. The QA organization provides a division of this facility into three areas with different requirements on the measures to be taken. For classification of systems and companies the results of the safety assessment, in particular of the incident analysis, are used. The waste package QC, i.e. the fulfillment of waste acceptance requirements, is either to be performed by checking the waste producer’s documentation and carrying out random tests or by qualifying and subsequently inspecting the waste conditioning process.
