IEEE 603-2018

IEEE Standard Criteria for Safety Systems for Nuclear Power Generating Stations

Minimum functional and design criteria for the power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating station safety systems are established. The criteria are to be applied to those systems required to protect the public health and safety by functioning to mitigate the consequences of design basis events. The intent is to promote appropriate practices for design and evaluation of safety system performance and reliability. Although the standard is limited to safety systems, many of the principles may have applicability to equipment provided for safe shutdown, post-accident monitoring display instrumentation, interlock features, or any other systems, structures, or equipment related to safety.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


P379.1

IEEE Draft Guide for Application of the Single-Failure Criterion to Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems

Guidance for the application of the single-failure criterion to the electrical power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating safety systems are provided in this guide.

Learn More

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


379-2014

IEEE Standard for Application of the Single-Failure Criterion to Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems

Requirements for the application of the single-failure criterion to the electrical power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating safety systems are provided in this standard.

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


379-2000

IEEE Standard Application of the Single-Failure Criterion to Nuclear Power Generating Station Safety Systems

Application of the single-failure criterion to the electrical power, instrumentation, and control portions of nuclear power generating station safety systems is covered. Conformance with the requirements of IEEE Std 603-1991 and the single-failure criterion as stated in that document is established. Interpretation and guidance in the application of the single-failure criterion, a discussion of the failures, and an acceptable method of single-failure analysis are presented.

The intent is to promote appropriate practices for design and evaluation of safety system performance and reliability.

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
