Abstract

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has produced many important documents that govern nuclear power plant (NPP) design. The documents have in several countries been applied in national legislation on nuclear facilities. The documents are sometimes due to their sheer volume inaccessible, but they have a logical structure that helps users to orient among the documents. Especially if basic safety principles are lifted up together with their subordinate principles, a structure that is easy to understand starts to emerge. The paper goes through IAEA safety standards and supporting documents applicable to instrumentation and control (I&C) in system design as well as operation and maintenance and shows how these documents are interconnected.
