  • Description

    Call on the information in NFPA 806, 2020 edition, to help ensure a safe and responsible change process for fire protection programs of advanced nuclear reactor electric generating plants.

    The need for improved fire protection in nuclear power facilities has been demonstrated through a variety of notable incidents in the US and internationally. NFPA 806, Performance-Based Standard for Fire Protection for Advanced Nuclear Reactor Electric Generating Plants Change Process, provides comprehensive criteria for risk-informed fire protection in advanced nuclear power plants during their construction and all phases of operation, including degraded conditions and final shutdown and decommissioning.

    The standard offers guidance vital to helping to minimize the effects of fire on the integrity of plant components and on the safety of the public, plant personnel, and business operations in:

    • Advanced light water reactors
    • Advanced heavy water reactors
    • Advanced gas-cooled reactors
    • Advanced liquid metal reactors
    • Other types of advanced reactors

    The 2020 edition of NFPA 806, Performance-Based Standard for Fire Protection for Advanced Nuclear Reactor Electric Generating Plants Change Process, represents the latest industry knowledge and best practices.

    This safety document is a fundamental resource for everyone from designers and code enforcers to installers, facility managers, and others involved in plant change processes such as performing risk analysis, fire modeling, and plant operations.

    The 2020 edition features:

    • Updated extracted material to the current editions of the source documents
    • Incorporated language from NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®, to more clearly identify materials that should be considered limited-combustible

    Get current with cutting-edge fire protection in nuclear plants during the change process by upgrading to the 2020 edition of the standard.

    Play your part in helping to increase fire protection and safety in advanced nuclear power plants and protecting plant personnel, property, the public, and the environment. Place your order for NFPA 806, Performance-Based Standard for Fire Protection for Advanced Nuclear Reactor Electric Generating Plants Change Process, 2020 edition.
