Faire avancer la sûreté nucléaire
Nuclear fuel cycle facilities, laboratories, irradiators, particle accelerators, under-decommissioning reactors and radioactive waste management facilities safety. Lessons learned from events notified between 2005 and 2008
Date de publication : 04/05/2010

France has more than 70 civil basic nuclear installations (BNI) falling under the category "Laboratories, plants, facilities being dismantled, waste processing or interim storage facilities or disposal facilities" (LUDD).


To encourage the diffusion of operating feedback, IRSN has produced a report concerning events notified to the Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) by operators of LUDD facilities between 2005 and 2008.


The main objective is to make general lessons for safety in this type of facility available based on a cross-disciplinary analysis of notified events and noted evolution trends.
