Abstract

The report is concerned with the regulation of nuclear safety. It is intended as a source of guidance to those at the senior governmental and regulatory level in countries operating nuclear power programmes, particularly where such arrangements are currently being introduced or strengthened. This document (Part 2 of the report) examines the more practical arrangements that need to be implemented in order to establish an effective regulatory organization, including the legislative and financial provisions, the establishment of headquarters and regional offices and their interrelation, the selection of regulatory staff and the provision of support facilities and equipment. Nuclear safety assessment objectives and criteria including deterministic and probabilistic approaches, are reviewed, as are the arrangements for regulatory evaluation of a licence applicant's safety case, and for the periodic in depth review to reassess the safety of ageing plant. The report reviews the objectives and principles that relate to emergency response planning, together with the practical arrangements for their implementation. It covers the roles of the licensee, the regulatory organization, and other relevant organizations that may be called upon to respond in the event of a significant plant accident.
