Upon Member State request, the IAEA provides TSR services to address the needs of Member States at all stages of development and deployment of nuclear power programmes. The TSR is based on the IAEA Safety Standards and incorporates services dedicated to the following subject areas:
  • Design Safety (DS) - The objective of the Design Safety (DS) Review, performed at the request of a Member State organization, is the safety review of designs of nuclear power plants against IAEA Safety Standards. The review can be limited to specific technical areas. Read more »
  • Generic Reactor Safety (GRS) - Review service conducted by the IAEA staff and international experts to review the safety case of new reactor design against the requirements of IAEA Safety Standards on Safety Assessment for Facilities and Activities (GSR Part 4) and Safety of NPPs: Design (SSR-2/1).

TSR services provide a tailored, independent evaluation of the plant design safety and safety assessment documentation and makes recommendations for enhancement and improvement to safety.
 
TSR review services are conducted in support of Member States during the following life cycle stages: conceptual design, various pre-licensing as well as licensing phases, nuclear power plants construction, operation and plant modifications including periodic safety reviews and life time extension.
 
The TSR services consist of the following phases:
