About

Scope

Standardization and promotion of good practices associated with the planning, design, construction, operation and decommissioning of installations, processes and technologies involving radioactive materials

Nuclear installations, processes and technologies include: the Fuel Cycle including mining, ex-reactor nuclear criticality safety, analytical methodologies, transport of radioactive materials, materials characterisation, radioactive waste management, decommissioning and geological disposal.

Excluded :

  • Specific enabling technologies and techniques for non-peaceful applications
  • Sealed sources, radiation processing, nuclear power plants and research reactors
  • The potential for a criticality accident outside reactor cores should nevertheless be evaluated
