The scope covers standardization in the field of nuclear power plants and research reactors. The scope includes calculation, analysis and measurements in support of physics of power reactor core design and operation. The scope includes siting, design, construction, operation and decommissioning. Siting includes all types of nuclear installations and all topics such as flooding, seismic hazards, etc. Research reactors include a large variety of facilities : production of neutron beams, irradiation of specimens, production of isotopes (especially production for nuclear medicine) and test reactors or prototypes of new technologies. Excluded : decommissioning is limited to technical topics that are specific to reactors
