regulatory documents 


This presents a current view of Normative Technical Documents (NTD) used in Ukraine for regulating and supervising safety in nuclear power plants. The NTD system includes laws and secondary legal acts, Standarts, System of Rules and Norms and design documentation.
The norms, regulations and standards for nuclear and radiation safety are the criteria, requirements and conditions which ensure safety of the use of nuclear power. Development of the norms and regulations for nuclear and radiation safety is executed by Nuclear Regulatory Administration (NRA) - structural department of Ministry of Ukraine for Environmental Protection and Nuclear Safety (MEPNS). The requirements of said norms, regulations and standards are developed taking into account the recommendations of international organizations in the sphere of nuclear power utilization such as International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
