Nuclear Power Plant Response to an Earthquake

This standard describes actions that the owner of a nuclear power plant shall take to prepare for and respond to a felt earthquake at the plant(s), including the need for plant shutdown; actions to determine the readiness of the plant to resume operation; and those evaluations necessary to verify the long-term integrity of safety-related and important structures, systems, and components. It also includes a consensus definition of operating basis earthquake exceedance, beyond which U.S. regulations require plant shutdown. Application of this revised standard provides a comprehensive, balanced plan for the response of a nuclear power plant to an earthquake.
