About This Item


Full Description


This is the second edition of CSA N286, Management system requirements for nuclear facilities. It supersedes the previous edition, published in 2005 under the title Management system requirements for nuclear power plants. The scope of this edition expands beyond nuclear power plants to include nuclear facilities as defined by this Standard.


This Standard applies to the top management with overall accountability for the nuclear facility.

This Standard integrates the management system requirements for health, safety, environment, security, economics, and quality.

This Standard applies to the life cycle of the nuclear facility from the initial conception through completion of decommissioning.

This Standard also applies to supplier(s) contracted to perform the life-cycle activities of design, supply chain, construction, commissioning, operation, and decommissioning of the nuclear facility; however, the top management of the nuclear facility remains accountable to ensure the requirements of this Standard are met. 1.5 In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non mandatory) to define their application.
