Summary

REGDOC-2.4.2 sets out requirements and guidance for conducting a Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) for reactor facilities. New guidance has also been included as a result of additional feedback from stakeholders to clarify the intent of certain requirements.

The purpose of this regulatory document, when incorporated into a licence to construct or operate a nuclear reactor facility or other legally enforceable instrument, is to ensure that the licensee conducts a probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) in accordance with defined requirements.

The requirements and guidance contained in this regulatory document are applicable to all reactor facilities, including nuclear power plants, small reactor facilities, small modular reactors, or research reactors using a graded approach.

REGDOC-2.4.2, Version 2, supersedes REGDOC-2.4.2, Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) for Nuclear Power Plants published in May 2014 and S-294, Probabilistic Safety Assessment (PSA) for Nuclear Power Plants, published in April 2005.
