With the improvement of nuclear technology and nuclear safety, accidental operating procedure, as an important component of the defence in depth concept for nuclear power plant operation, develops in the way of being more robust and more operator-friendly, especially following the Three Miles Island accident. In China, nuclear power plants try to change from Event Oriented Procedure (EOP) to State Oriented Procedure (SOP) which is a scenario independent approach, developed by French institutes. This paper tries to discuss the principle of the state oriented approach and the composition of SOP. At the same time, comparison between SOP and EOP is made. Having understood the bases of SOP, China Nuclear Power Plants apply it from design to implementation appropriately only.
