NUCLEAR STANDARDS CATALOGUE AND CLASSIFICATION
In this edition of the catalogue an attempt has been made for the first time to also include all standards projects which have not yet reached the level of officially published draft standards. Obviously, much of this material has only a limited circulation, or is confidential. Therefore, the 472 projects which have been listed cannot be considered to reflect a complete picture of the situation in all important nuclear countries, but nevertheless should be a valuable source of information regarding the future course of nuclear standardization. The catalogue reflects with its about one thousand new entries that in recent years substantial progress has made both in the fields of - the more basic nuclear safety standards which are traditionally developed nationally by the regulatory governmental or semi-governmental authorities, and internationally by governmental organizations (primarily IAEA), and - the contractual or industrial standards which are required to supplement the above with more detailed, up-to-date and flexible information, or in areas not covered by regulatory activities; they are usually developed in national standards institutions by the consensus method, involving all relevant institutions, organizations and companies; on the international level, they are primarily developed by the International Standards Organization ISO and the International Electrotechnical Commission IEC.
