In a previous publication [1] the principles of a vulnerability assessment of the safeguards approach for a geological repository were elaborated and an illustrative example for optimising the safeguards approach for several diversion paths was given, based on the parameters detection probability, false alarm probability and delay time (between diversion and detection). For an improved optimisation the cost of implementing the safeguards approach has been included as a parameter in the vulnerability assessment. Furthermore the considered diversion paths and safeguards measures have been evaluated and updated according to the state-of-the-art of safeguards for a geological repository.
