This report contains the information presented at the meeting of the Working Group on Performance Confirmation Plans for the Proposed Yucca Mountain High-Level Waste Repository. This working group session was convened by the Advisory Committee on Nuclear Waste and held at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission headquarters in Rockville, Maryland, on July 29-30, 2003. This report summarizes the presentations given to the Committee, along with the presentation materials and selected discussions among the participants. The working group included a panel of six experts who observed and commented on the proceedings.

The purposes of the working group were (1) to increase ACNW's technical knowledge of plans to develop and conduct performance confirmation (PC) work for the proposed Yucca Mountain repository, (2) to understand NRC staff expectations for performance confirmation, (3) to review examples of performance confirmation work being planned, (4) to identify aspects of performance confirmation that may warrant further study, and (5) to complement the previous working group session on performance assessment.
