Safety Assessment for Spent Fuel Storage Facilities: A Safety Practice

English STI/PUB/981 92-0-105194-8
68 20.50 1995


This Safety Practice has been developed through a series of technical meetings and addresses the management of all issues relevant to the safe storage of spent fuel from nuclear power plants. Complementing Safety Series No. 116, Design of Spent Fuel Storage Facilities, and Safety Series No. 117, Operation of Spent Fuel Storage Facilities, it describes accepted international approaches for maintaining fuel subcritical, removing residual heat, providing radiation protection and containing radioactive materials for the lifetime of the facility. It is primarily intended to provide details on the safety assessment of interim spent fuel storage facilities that are not an integral part of an operating nuclear power plant.
