Industry standard components in nuclear applications

The use of industry standard or commercial-off-the-shelf (Cots) equipment in nuclear power facilities has become more common in recent years, particularly for digital industrial devices such as smart sensors. However, to date, different countries’ industries have adopted varying approaches to the justification and licensing of digital Cots devices, and a unified approach has yet to emerge. 

Energiforsk R&D program ENSRIC has commissioned UK consultancy Adelard to study the approach towards the use, licensing and justification of digital Cots in nuclear applications. The scope of the study will cover the nuclear industries of different countries, other non-nuclear safety-critical industries, and the approach laid out in arecently developed IAEA guide on the subject.

The findings will be presented at this seminar, along with a number of invoted distinguished international speakers who will share the approaches adopted by their industries and lessons that have been learned. The seminar will include opportunities for discussion and sharing of lessons and good practices between representatives of different industries.

Confirmed speakers at this point are:

  • Sofia Guerra and Eoin Butler, Adelard, UK
  • Pär Lansåker, Vattenfall, Sweden
  • Steven Ardnt, NRC, US
  • Silke Kuball, EDF Energy, UK
  • Kevin McKay, OPG Canada
  • Maria Palo, ÅF, Finland

Fee: The participation fee is 1000 SEK + VAT.
