The NEA Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) held its biannual meeting on 4‑5 June 2020 via video conference.
The participants reviewed four joint project and eight new activity proposals such as the organisation of a symposium on the probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) for unique or singular reactors. Committee members also reviewed 11 reports, including a state‑of‑the‑art report on reactivity‑initiated accidents and a report on improving the robustness of electrical power systems for nuclear plants.
The meeting closed with a discussion on the impacts of the COVID‑19 pandemic on CSNI activities. The committee decided to hold a specific session at its December meeting on actions taken and lessons learnt during the pandemic.
