Defence in depth: facilities

SCOPE OF CHAPTER 6

 

This module covers the defence in depth guidance applicable to specified facilities. This module is everything not covered by the guidance for radiation sources or reactors at power.

The list here identifies the main facilities where this guidance will be used. The defence in depth chapter for sources refers you on to this chapter for degradation of safety provisions associated with Category 1 sources. If you start there, you end up here!

In the next few pages we will remind ourselves of what we already learned in the defence in depth overview module.
