Safety and risk assessment of Nuclear Fuel Facilities; Graded approach based on the risk level

Yoshida, Kazuo

Enerugi Rebyu, 40(4), p.19 - 20, 2020/03

The probabilistic Risk Assessment has been recognized to have important role for the safety enhancement of nuclear facilities in Japan. Efforts of developing methodologies and basic data for risk assessment are undertaken actively for NFFs (Nuclear Fuel Facilities) in Japan. The standard for risk assessment for NFFs is consist of simplified assessment detailed one based on the concept of Graded Approach depending on the risk levels of their facilities. Risk-informed application is useful for activities of enhancing safety measures by the licensee rather than in regulatory decision making because of lower risk level of NFFs. The risk assessment has been also required in the periodic safety self-review by the licensees. The correct understanding of significance of risk assessment for safety management of facilities is essential for the risk-informed application. It is key event to apply the risk assessment in the safety self-review and new regulatory inspection system.

Evaluation of the radiation effects of residents living around the NSRI under the external hazards

Motome, Yuiko; Akiyama, Yoshiya; Murao, Hiroyuki

Proceedings of 26th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE-26) (Internet), 8 Pages, 2018/07

The NSRR is a research reactor of TRIGA-ACPR type, located in the Nuclear Science Research Institute. The NSRR facility has been utilized for fuel irradiation experiments to study the behaviors of nuclear fuels under reactivity initiated accident conditions. Under the new regulation standards after the Fukushima Daiichi accident, the research reactors are being regulated according to the risk of the facility. Graded approach is introduced in the regulation. In order to apply the graded approach, the radiation effects of residents living around the NSRI under the external hazards were evaluated and the level of the risk of the NSRR facility was investigating. This report is summarized for the result of the evaluation in case the safety functions were lost by the tornado, earthquake and following tsunami. As the result, the risk is confirmed to be low, since the effective dose of the residents has been below 5 mSv per event due to the loss of the safety functions by the tornado, earthquake and following tsunami.
