Maintaining RIPB in commercial LWRs
The new standard ANSI/ANS-30.3-2022, Light Water Reactor Risk-Informed, Performance-Based Design, has just been issued by the American Nuclear Society. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) on July 21, 2022, the standard provides requirements for the incorporation of risk-informed, performance-based (RIPB) principles and methods into the nuclear safety design of commercial light water reactors. The process described in this standard establishes a minimum set of process requirements the designer must follow in order to meet the intent of this standard and appropriately combine deterministic, probabilistic, and performance-based methods during design development.

The Naval Nuclear Laboratory is the U.S. Navy’s trusted partner for superior nuclear propulsion technology, design, testing, training, and support. We have cradle-to-grave responsibility from technology development through design to disposal. We have one mission: to develop the world’s best naval nuclear propulsion systems for all U.S. Navy submarines and aircraft carriers, training Sailors to operate them, and provide full lifecycle support to the Fleet. We offer a unique opportunity to contribute to a unique mission – to ensure the effectiveness and safety of our designs, to ensure the unfailing availability of these national assets, to train the Sailors that operate these propulsion plants, and to responsively and safely dispose of spent fuel. The Naval Nuclear Laboratory relies on the dedication and innovation of our nearly 8,000 engineers, scientists, technicians, and support personnel.
