After several years of intense labor by many industry people, ASME is about to issue its newly approved PRA standard. This standard is for probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) for nuclear power plant applications. It is not a standard on how to build a PRA model; although, that could be inferred from the standard’s technical requirements. This Standard sets forth requirements for PRAs used to support risk-informed decisions related to design, licensing, procurement, construction, operation, and maintenance. It also prescribes a method for applying these requirements depending the degree to which risk information is needed and credited.
