Radioactive waste received by manufacture of electric power requires  a  highly reliable burial place. One of the most perspective types of storehouses is underground developments in adjournment to soluble salts, created by dissolution through chinks from the surface. Existing requirements to a burial place of radioactive waste are described as key aspects of a complex method of an assessment of a mechanical condition of rocks in vicinities of  chambers-  storehouses in seismically active areas which are potentially suitable for storage and burial place  of waste are stated.
