This TECDOC is the first IAEA publication on safety classification of components for fusion applications. It highlights the existing differences between fission and fusion reactors in identification and classification of structures, systems and components that are important to safety and offers practical information on fusion applications. The publication also provides information on inclusion of the new design extension conditions, which have been added after the review of IAEA Safety Guides following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident.
