ANS/ASME Joint Committee on Nuclear Risk Management (JCNRM)

The JCNRM Consensus Committee is responsible for the preparation and maintenance of voluntary consensus standards that establish safety and risk criteria and methods for completion of probabilistic risk analysis (PRA) and risk assessments. Additional related standards activities may be performed as upon concurrence of the ANS Standards Board and the ASME Standards & Certification Board. These criteria and methods are applicable to design, development, construction, operation, decontamination, decommissioning, waste management, and environmental restoration for nuclear facilities. Activities of the consensus committee shall be guided by the Procedures for ASME Codes and Standards Development Committees but shall also meet the intent of ANS Standards Committee Procedures Manual for Consensus Committees unless specifically authorized by the ANS Standards Board.

The JCNRM is responsible for the following standards projects:

ASME/ANS RA-S, "Standard for Level 1/Large Early Release Frequency Probabilistic Risk Assessment for Nuclear Power Plant Applications"

ANS/ASME-58.22, "Requirements for Low Power and Shutdown Probabilistic Risk Assessment"

ASME/ANS RA-S-1.2, "Severe Accident Progression and Radiological Release (Level 2) PRA Methodology to Support Nuclear Installation Applications" (previously ANS/ASME-58.24)

ASME/ANS RA-S-1.3, "Standard for Radiological Accident Offsite Consequence Analysis (Level 3 PRA) to Support Nuclear Installation Applications" (previously ANS/ASME-58.25)

ASME/ANS RA-S-1.4-2013, "Probabilistic Risk Assessment Standard for Advanced Non-LWR Nuclear Power Plants"

ASME/ANS RA-S 1.5, "Advanced Light Water Reactor PRA Standard"
