A key issue in the safety of spent nuclear fuel storage is the lifetime and effectiveness of barriers isolating the radioactive waste from the environment. In the event of a failure of the waste disposal package, the condition of the fuel pellets and the impact on their immediate surroundings will be an important factor. The goal of this review article is to summarize the state and changes of nuclear fuel at the end of the fuel cycle and the influence of the parameters of the deep repository environment on the corrosion processes of the engineered barriers and on the release of radionuclides during storage.
