Many Member States operating nuclear power plants (NPPs) are at present developing accident management programmes (AMPs) aimed at the prevention and mitigation of severe accidents. Such developments are in compliance with the revised set of IAEA safety standards and, in particular, with the Safety Requirements on Design, on Operation, and on Preparedness and Response for a Nuclear and Radiological Emergency. Adequate training represents an essential component of the qualification of AM personnel and for the successful implementation of AMP. Available tools and support material, applicable to the training of the staff involved in AM, are discussed in greater detail in the present publication. Many examples of such tools and materials are provided in the appendices. The report is intended to facilitate the work to be performed by NPP operators, utilities and their technical support organizations.
