Working Group on Digital Instrumentation and Control (WGDIC)

The Committee on Nuclear Regulatory Activities (CNRA) established the Working Group on Digital Instrumentation and Control (WGDIC) in 2017, which met periodically. Members of and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were invited to participate in this working group's activities. The main objective of the WGDIC was to promote harmonisation and improvements in nuclear safety through the development of regulatory guidance to address digital instrumentation and control (DI&C) topics and technical issues of concern to its member countries, for both operating and new reactors. This regulatory guidance was not intended to replace the guidance already available from international standards organisations; instead, the collective scientific, technical knowledge and experience of WGDIC members were brought together to develop consensus positions (CPs) representing the common understanding and harmonisation of regulatory practices.
