The training course will deal with presentation
and discussion of the safety conception of design of nuclear installations
and the key aspects to be considered in the design phase in order to assure
an adequate level of safety. It will include:
Evaluation of safety conception: safety
objectives, safety criteria and requirements
for independence, diversity, redundancy, protection from internal events,
protection from external events, protection from severe accidents.
Civil structures design safety requirements and
Safety functions and related frontline and
support systems and components.
Classifications of structures, systems and
components - Identification of list of safety related ‘’parts’’ of the NPP.
Use of PSA (and expert review) to have an integrated view of the NPP
conceptual design and to identify week points to be improved in the design.
Key aspects of deterministic and probabilistic
Licensing approach and dialog with the
applicant and safety justification to be elaborated for licensing will be
The module will present and discus the
objective and scope of the content of the SAR and PSA. The structure of SAR
and PSA will be presented and related safety standards stating the content
The conduct of the regulatory assessment of the
SAR in terms of completeness and adequacy of its content will be presented.
Identification of main priorities in the assessment of the SAR with respect
to different phases of license for construction or operation will be discussed.
The role and objective of the PSA study during
the licensing activity will be presented and discussed. The role and use of
PSA from regulatory review will be presented. Finding and experience of
regulatory review of SAR and PSA will be presented.
Aspects related to effective management of
regulatory review of SAR and PSA will be covered in the training program and
how to prepare the regulatory evaluation report and use it in the decision
Reference standards and guidelines for regulatory
review of design safety of SAR and PSA of NPP will be addressed. Practical
elaboration and evaluation will be included in the training program.
