This Safety Guide provides recommendations regarding the criteria and methodologies to be used for seismic safety evaluation of existing nuclear installations, including installations whose purpose and associated radiological risks have changed, installations where longer term operation is under consideration and installations where comprehensive seismic safety reassessments have become necessary. Two methodologies are discussed in detail: deterministic seismic margin assessment (SMA) and seismic probabilistic safety assessment (SPSA).
