The paper will cover the general approach followed by nuclear code RCC-M [1] of AFCEN, the French Society for Design, Construction and In-Service Inspection Rules for Nuclear Island Components, in codes and standards setting, from the technical and organizational points of views. The latest issue of RCC-M code edited in beginning of 2017 will be explained and commented. Main new topics of activity of RCC-M subcommittee will be also addressed: improvement in nonlinear analysis methods, technical qualification of active equipment, material and manufacturing techniques changes, principles of demonstration of code conformity with regulation, comparison with other codes and standards. The presentation highlights how the industrial experience is currently integrated into the RCC-M codes, and how code members had demonstrated the conformity with European essential safety requirements for pressure equipment.
