3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

INES Classifier 1.00 is intended to express assessment of events significance that have occurred at a nuclear facility. It allows to:

  • Automate the process of assessing the level of events significance that are possible or occurred at a nuclear facility in accordance with INES (2008 editiion);

  • Reduce the likelihood of errors caused by human factors and increase the efficiency of the assessments;

  • Automatically generate reports containing brief information about the criteria that are used to estimate the level of significance of the event according to the INES.

 

The report which is made by INES Classifier 1.00 contains:

  • Name of the nuclear facility;

  • Criteria according to which the event was evaluated according to the INES scale;

  • Interim assessments of events in each of the categories provided for by the INES;

  • The final assessment of the original event according to the INES.
