Risk Informed Standards Committee (RISC)

The Risk Informed Standards Committee has the following scope:
The American Nuclear Society Risk Informed Standards Committee is responsible for the development and maintenance of standards that establish safety and risk criteria and methods for probabilistic analysis, risk assessment, and risk management.  These criteria and methods are applicable to design, development, construction, operation, decontamination and decommissioning, waste management, and environmental restoration for nuclear facilities.
Currently the RISC Committee is involved in four projects.  Completing ANS-58.22, "Low Power and Shutdown PRA Methodology," and the following three joint projects with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers:
  • ASME/ANS RA-S, "Standard for Level 1/Large Early Release Frequency Probabilistic Risk Assessment for Nuclear Power Plant Applications"

  • ANS/ASME-58.24, "Severe Accident Progression and Radiological Release (Level 2) PRA Methodology to Support Nuclear Installation Applications"

  • ANS/ASME-58.25, "Standard for Radiological Accident Offsite Consequence Analysis (Level 3 PRA) to Support Nuclear Installation Applications"
