This paper summarizes the work performed in Task 3.6, Reliability and Qualification of components, of the EU H2020 project Modern2020. It synthezises progress made by eight expert organisations on a common multi-stage methodology for qualifying monitoring components (MC) of the measurement chain (sensor, connecting cable and/or wireless system/controller) at a Deep Geological Repository (DGR). This study was reported as document D3.6 [1] in the Modern2020 project and results from a multi-stage analysis including: i) the study of transferable experience gained from the energy and space fields, ii) the feed back of long-term and demonstration experiments operating in conditions close to those expected in repositories at Underground Research Laboratories (URLs) or at large mock-up, iii) the initiatives for the development of a qualification process for selecting and testing the monitoring components and at last, iv) the proposal for a global protocol appropriate to all monitoring contexts.
