A joint workshop of the Working Group on the Analysis and Management of Accidents (WGAMA) and the Working Group on Risk Assessment (WGRISK) on implementation of severe accident management (SAM) measures was sponsored by the Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and was held in Schloss Böttstein, Switzerland on 26-28 October 2009, in co-operation with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the Swiss utilities running NPPs Beznau, Leibstadt, Gösgen and Mühleberg.
This workshop was a follow-up to the past CSNI activities in the area of SAM implementation, and took stock of the progress made since previous workshops. Workshop participants addressed SAM measures for both operating plants and new plant designs (as available) and the integration of SAM measures into contemporary/future probabilistic risk assessments.
