Extended interim storage of spent nuclear fuel in dry storage casks increases the public safety concern related to possible spent fuel degradation as a consequence of aging of these systems before the spent fuel can be retrieved and shipped to a final repository. Measurements are thus necessary to help verify the integrity of these systems and justify the safety of extended interim dry storage. This paper will provide an overview of activities related to the nondestructive examination of dry storage casks to help ensure their integrity over extended interim storage periods.
