The ROOTS® nuclear safety analysis method is a proven, innovative method that combines both a deductive and an inductive risk assessment conducted at the functional level. Discover it in our new White Paper 2017-01 ‘The ROOTS® method – an innovative reference method for the nuclear safety case development for laboratories, nuclear plants and nuclear decommissioning’.
The method allows to generate a comprehensive analysis of the facility and responds to the latest requirements for safety cases for nuclear facilities in France. It allows to identify those Elements Important for Safety and Activities Important for Safety and define the related requirements. This leads to operational requirements that are more finely adapted to the safety requirements. The method has the benefits to identify those requirements based on the operational condition of the facility thus providing a much needed flexibility, in particular during decommissioning activities.
The method has been developed by CleanuC and is today proven and implemented in various stages of detail on 5 nuclear facilities in France. Additional implementations are ongoing.
Read our new White Paper 2017-01 ‘The ROOTS® method – an innovative reference method for the nuclear safety case development for laboratories, nuclear plants and nuclear decommissioning’ describing the method, its justification and the benefits provided in terms of safety case implementation and safety requirements flexibility in nuclear facilities.
