This report is the published product of a study by the British Geological Survey (BGS) into the requirements necessary for design and implementation of a database system for a possible geosphere characterisation programme by UK Nirex Ltd. The database system outlined within this report is designed to support UK Nirex Ltd aims to demonstrate, on the basis of designs and documents that a programme of geosphere characterisation could be implemented by Nirex, if requested to do so, and that if it is practicable to characterise a site for the development and implementation of a phased geological disposal facility in the UK. The proposed solution outlines a ‘Data System’ that we feel will fulfil the requirement to correctly and professionally hold, query and manage the data from a geosphere characterisation programme. Where applicable details of any horizon IT developments have been included in this report to aid in decision making and highlight future development pathways of the proposed solution.
