After a lengthy review process which resulted in the resolution of several important technical issues, designs for two similar casks have been certified. This paper describes the certification phase of the demonstration. Based on experience gained during certification phase of the demonstration. Based on experience gained during certification, observations and recommendations have been developed which can benefit others seeking NRC approval of transportation cask designs.
