This paper overviews the ongoing research and development as well as activities for codification of structural codes for the Japan Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR). Not only the design and construction code which has been published and updated on a regular basis, codes on welding, fitness-for-service, leak-before-break evaluation as well as the guidelines for structural reliability evaluation are being developed. The basic strategy for the development is to fully take advantage of the favorable technical characteristics associated with sodium-cooled fast reactors; the codes will be developed based on the System Based Code concept. The above mentioned set of codes are planned to be published from the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2016.
