Section 4.5.2, Site characterization

The application should refer to, or summarize, the information previously submitted in any relevant environmental review or licensing documentation, such as impact assessments and any previous licence application (such as licence to prepare site).

The results of site characterization are used in facility design and supporting safety analysis. The application should focus on confirmation of the site characteristics (especially external events) and on assessing the effects of any updated information.

The applicant should describe the site evaluation process and procedures used during the design phase and design assessment stage, including:

·       site-specific hazard evaluation for external events (of human or natural origin)

·       design assumptions or values in terms of recurrence probability of external events

·       definition of the design basis for external events

·       collection of site reference data for the facility design (geotechnical, seismological, hydrological, hydrogeological and meteorological)

·       arrangements for the monitoring of site-related parameters throughout the lifecycle of the reactor facility

·       site plan and description, and site reference data

·       exclusion zone authority and control

For additional information on site characterization, see:

·       REGDOC‑1.1.1, Site Evaluation and Site Preparation for New Reactor Facilities [26]

·       sections 4.1, 4.2.2 and 6.4 of REGDOC‑2.5.2, Design of Reactor Facilities: Nuclear Power Plants [9]

For additional information on exclusion zone authority and control, see:

·       REGDOC‑1.1.1, Site Evaluation and Site Preparation for New Reactor Facilities [26]

·       sections 6.5 and 6.6 of REGDOC‑2.5.2, Design of Reactor Facilities: Nuclear Power Plants [9]
