safety analysis report after 10 years
The initial SAR for NPP V-2 was drafted in 1983 according to the instructions for drafting
and contents of safety reports issued by ČSKAE. Based on the requirements of the approved
structure, sections of preliminary safety report were taken over without any
modifications, others were supplemented, and the missing sections were drafted separately.
Amended safety analysis report
In connection with the granting of approval for the operation by ČSKAE of the NPP
pursuant to Act No.28/1984 Coll., ČSKAE in its Decision No. 199/91 made approval of
continued operation of Bohunice NPP unit 3 conditional upon the meeting of a set of
conditions. Among others, these conditions included also submission of an amended SAR that
would demonstrate the status of the provision for nuclear safety after ten years of
operation of NPP V-2 units.
A strategy was adopted for drafting the amended V-2 SAR. Because of the overall
development in safety assessment methodologies, it was decided to draft an entirely new
report, structured in accordance with the guideline US NRC RG 1.70. The objectives of the
individual chapters remained preserved, although the contents of some sections were
adjusted and updated to the conditions of NPP V-2 since guideline RG 1.70 has been
intended for the drafting of a SAR for a new NPP in the legal environment of the US. All
legal regulations applicable in Slovakia were taken into account during the safety
evaluation . In areas where no regulations and standards have been defined in the Slovak
Republic, international regulations and/or regulations applicable in other countries were
Available project data, background materials on project documents and results of safety
analyses and works implemented for the purpose of improving NPP V-2 nuclear safety during
ten years of operation were used for the NPP V-2 safety report.
