In Finland, Olkiluoto Island has been selected for constructing a spent nuclear fuel disposal facility. With the approaching licensing step, submitting the application for nuclear construction licence in 2012, all components of the safety case are becoming more site-specific. In order to assess compliance with regulatory requirements, a prospective deterministic dose assessment methodology based on the ICRP concept of assessing doses to the representative person was developed and implemented in the interim safety case 2009, to be further refined for the safety case 2012. To facilitate the assessment of doses to the most exposed people and other people at the evolving site, full dose distributions are derived, comprising the dose to each potentially exposed person in each generation.
