The nuclear regulatory commission has published the second and fifth volume of the SER - safety evaluation report- for the Yucca Mountain repository.
Thus, regulators have finished the publication of the report, which consists of five volumes.
The сommission has not found for the proposed repository any serious drawbacks from a safety point.
