About

Scope

Standardization and promotion of good practices associated with the planning, construction, operation and decommissioning of installations, processes and technologies involving radioactive materials. Nuclear installations, processes and technologies include: the Fuel Cycle, ex-reactor nuclear criticality safety, analytical methodologies, transport of radioactive materials, materials characterisation, radioactive waste management and decommissioning.

Excluded: specific enabling technologies and techniques for non-peaceful applications; sealed sources, radiation processing, nuclear power plants and research reactors (with regard to nuclear criticality safety while fuel is loaded in the reactor core).
