On March 5th 2012, EASIT2, in conjunction with NAFEMS, held a live webinar on the Harmonisation of Codes & Standards in the Nuclear Industry. You can now view the recording of the webinar for free by clicking here (registration required).
After more than 50 years of development, the civil nuclear power industry is now ready for standardised reactor designs which will enable the reactor designs from one country to be built in another country. Such standardisation will help nuclear power to contribute to the clean energy needs and lead to safer and more reliable use of nuclear power around the world. One of the areas where the nuclear industry has taken initiative is to harmonise industry codes and standards. This presentation describes the first pilot project being run by an International Task Force set up by the World Nuclear Association under their Cooperation in Reactor Design Evaluation and Licensing (CORDEL) group to harmonisation codes and standards.
