    NIRAS/ONDRAF plans the construction of a test cover to monitor evolution and performance of a multi-layer cover, as foreseen in the surface disposal system for LLIL-SL waste at Dessel, over a long period of time. The current report describes the layout of the test cover, the objectives, system components and propose an scientific program, an instrumentation and monitoring plan. It formed the basis of a review process and a discussion workshop by an International Expert Panel on the Test Cover. The main remarks of the Experts are summarized at the end of the report. Further development of test cover design (including engineered profiles) and instrumentation will take these remarks into consideration.
