Knowledge of the location of sites and the content of deep geological repositories has to be retained for future generations. As part of the licensing procedure, the proprietor of a storage site has to present a concept for marking the location of the deep geological repository that has to be more closely defined as in the further course of the licensing phase. Permanent marking of the site may not impair the long-term safety of a storage site.
A study of the literature commissioned by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy provides an overview of the current state of science on the subject of marking deep geological repositories.

Findings from this study of the literature will be discussed at international level. That is why the SFOE is participating in a project arranged by the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) with the working title Preservation of RK&M Across Generations.
