Route readiness elements in a large-scale spent nuclear fuel transportation system
The scale and duration of a national campaign to transport spent nuclear fuel (SNF) from commercial nuclear power plants around the United States would be unprecedented. A meticulous level of planning that considers many elements is needed to inspire public confidence and support.

The ANSI/ASME/ANS "Probabilistic Risk Assessment Standard for Advanced Non-Light Water Reactor Nuclear Power Plants" was approved and published January 28, 2021. The development of the Non-LWR PRA Standard encountered many technical issues that the working group overcame, such as: database development for the 1,500+ requirements; combining PRA elements from multiple PRA standards into one comprehensive PRA standard; formation of absolute importance measures and screening criteria; and appropriate language to allow PRA applications over the entire design/operation life cycle. This panel will discuss these technical issues and the lessons learned from the development of the Non-LWR PRA Standard.
