The recent performance assessments of nuclear waste disposal in Finland have been carried out by employing scenario technique. Different actions of man have been considered in developing of the scenarios. The human action scenarios analyzed in detail include intrusion due to exploratory drillings in the case of deep disposal of spent fuel, and drilling of a well in the vicinity of the repository in the case of rock cavern disposal of low and medium level waste. For the future safety analyses of spent fuel disposal two human related scenarios are being considered: (1) failures in sealing of the repository, and (2) use of a deep borehole as a drinking water well.
