This panel is one in a series of panel discussions sponsored by ANS's Risk-Informed, Performance-Based Principles and Policy Committee on incorporation of RIPB principles into ANS standards. This panel will include a report on RP3C's development of a Guidance Document aimed at standards developers to help incorporate RIPB principles into their standards, (tentatively) a presentation on the current status of a standard under development, a discussion of Southern Company's use of the "affirmative safety case" concept in their approach to non-LWR licensing basis development, and a brief presentation on ANS's newly constituted "Advanced Reactor Working Group."
