image of The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle - Third Edition

The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by technical experts and safety authorities. This third edition of The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle presents an up-to-date analysis of the safety aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle.

Safety of the Transport of Radioactive Materials

Nuclear Energy Agency

Specific safety regulations are well-developed and harmonised internationally. Accident situations have been taken into account from the beginning and the transport regulations are framed so that unacceptable radiation exposures should not occur from either radioactivity release or shielding loss even in the case of severe accidents. Actual packages are designed to remain safe in the specified regulatory conditions of rain, stacking, collision, fire, and immersion.
