Conference paper


A regulatory handbook for PSA review [1] has been developed by SKI, the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate. A preliminary version of the handbook issued in late 1999 was comment by the licensees and used in a number of PSA reviews. During 2003, the handbook was finalised using experiences from these activities, and also reworked in order to take into account the latest development within the field of PSA applications, including risk-informed use of PSA. During the finalisation, the handbook has also been checked for consistency with a number of recent international PSA guidelines [2, 3 and 4].
