ICDE General Coding Guidelines: Technical Note


Several member countries of the Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD/NEA) established the International Common-Cause Failure Data Exchange Project (ICDE Project) to encourage multilateral co-operation in the collection and analysis of data relating to common-cause failure (CCF) events. In this document, the general coding guidelines for the ICDE Project are presented with explanations and appendices for each analysed component. The guide reflects the present experience with the already completed data collection.
