Risk Informed Licensing, Regulation and Safety Management of Nuclear Power Plants In Finland
Living PSA covers the whole life cycle of a nuclear power plant. Living PSA is formally integrated in the regulatory process of NPPs already in the early design phase and it is to run through the construction and operation phases all through the plant service time. As concerns a new plant unit, a design phase PSA is required as a prerequisite for issuing the Construction Licence and a complete level 1 and 2 PSA as a condition for issuing the Operating Licence.
