The scope covers standardization in the field of nuclear power plants and research reactors. The scope includes:

  • Calculation, analysis and measurements in support of physics of power reactor core design and operation.
  • Siting, design, construction, operation and decommissioning. Siting includes all types of nuclear installations and all topics such as flooding, seismic hazards, etc.
  • Research reactors include a large variety of facilities : production of neutron beams, irradiation of specimens, production of isotopes (especially production for nuclear medicine) and test reactors or prototypes of new technologies.
  • Excluded : decommissioning is limited to technical topics that are specific to reactors
