This Safety Requirements publication establishes a basis for safety and for safety assessment at all stages in the lifetime
of nuclear fuel cycle facilities. A broad scope of requirements is established for site evaluation, design, construction,
commissioning, operation and preparation for decommissioning that must be satisfied to ensure safety. These requirements apply
to facilities for conversion, enrichment, nuclear fuel production, storage of fresh and spent fuels, reprocessing, preparation
for disposal and associated research and development facilities.
