The Consultancy Meeting to Review the Draft Revised Safety Guide on Design of the Reactor Core for Nuclear Power Plants (NS-G-1.12) was held at IAEA Headquarters, Vienna, Austria, from 24 to 27 November 2015.
At previous meetings, the present safety guide was examined to identify gaps to be filled in order to be consistent with the new safety framework SSR-2/1 (Revision 1), and associated text was drafted. This meeting aimed to review and improve the current text of the draft safety guide and to address comments provided by IAEA staff.
During the meeting, all statements in the current draft safety guide were systematically reviewed in a consistent and comprehensive manner. Comments provided by IAEA staff were also addressed and reflected in the improved draft.
The draft Safety Guide on the Design of the Reactor Core for Nuclear Power Plants will be submitted to the Nuclear Safety Standards Committee for the formal review and comment process in the first quarter of 2016.
