Short summary
Peer reviews are conducted to improve the quality of scientific publications and can also be applied to the safety case. Research within the TRANSENS project suggests that extending the spectrum of reviewers and using transdisciplinary methods and tools in reviews not only opens perspectives to improve the quality, legitimacy, and acceptance of a safety case, but also increases the resilience of safety on the disposal pathway.
