Making emergency planning zones smarter: a risk-informed approach for new reactors
The health and safety of the public and protecting people from the consequences of a significant release of radioactive material has been a top priority since the early days of the civilian nuclear energy program. After World War II, it was realized that the core inventory of radionuclides is a potential hazard. From this knowledge, emergency planning zones (EPZs) for nuclear power plants were established.
The Bylaws and Rules were last updated June 2019.
