Abstract

Safety is a national responsibility of each State or nation having capability of designing a reactor core for nuclear power plants, and international standards and approaches to safety promote consistency, help to provide assurance that nuclear- and radiation-related technologies are used safely, and facilitate national and international technical cooperation between government regulatory and industry of each nation with nuclear power capabilities as well as international trade.
