New nuclear safety assessment principles

The 2006 revision of the safety assessment principles for nuclear facilities has now been published. Our inspectors use these safety assessment principles, together with the supporting technical assessment guides (TAGs), to guide regulatory decision making in the nuclear permissioning process. The principles were first published in 1979 for nuclear power reactors. They were revised in 1992 and this is the second major revision.
