About This Item


Full Description

This Standard specifies requirements for the material, analysis and design, construction, fabrication, inspection, examination, and aging management of nuclear safety-related structures. Nuclear safety- related structures covered in this Standard are
a) structures that support, house, or protect safety systems in nuclear power plants;
b) structures or their elements, where failure of the structures or their elements, would impede the function of safety systems;
c) structures and their elements that are required for the safe operation and/or safe shutdown of the reactor in nuclear power plants;
d) structures for the storage of wet irradiated fuel; and
e) structures for the storage of dry irradiated fuel and other radioactive waste material as agreed with the AHJ.

1) Not all elements of the structures described in Item e) are necessarily considered safety-related and therefore such elements are not governed by this Standard.
2) The structures described in Item e) can include, but are not limited to structures for storage of high-level radioactive waste material, where "high-level" is as described in Clause A.7 of CSA N292.0, and where the structure requires a design life greater than 50 years.
