This publication facilitates the understanding and practical application of the IAEA Safety Requirements for the Design of Nuclear Power Plants, SSR 2/1 (Rev. 1), which has been revised after the Fukushima Daiichi accident to strengthen the safety of the plant designs. It addresses in particular some novel requirements and concepts in SSR-2/1 (Rev. 1), that due to the complexity of the topics could lead to different interpretations. The publication is intended to clarify them in order to contribute to the harmonization of approaches and to coalesce or minimize diverging views.

Nuclear Power Plants, Safety Measures, Accidents, Prevention, Design and Construction, Nuclear Reactor, IAEA Safety Requirements, Fukushima Daiichi, Spent Fuel Pools, SFPs, Plant Design Envelope, Defence in Depth, Concept of Independence, Safety Assessment, Storage, I and C Systems, Concept of Practical Elimination, Cliff Edge Effects, Safety Margins, External Hazards, Equipment, Accident Management, Strategies, Member States, Lessons Learned, Coolant, Safety Levels, Supporting Systems, Failures, Heat Transfer, Heat Sink
