Industry standard components in nuclear I&C applications

The use of industry standard or commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment in nuclear power facilities has become more common in recent years, particularly for digital industrial devices such as smart sensors. However, to date, different countries’ have adopted varying approaches to the justification and licensing of digital Cots devices, and a unified approach has yet to emerge. 

Adelard in association with Energiforsk AB will be presenting the results of its study into the approach towards the use, licensing and justification of digital Cots in nuclear applications. The scope of the study will cover the nuclear industries of different countries, other non-nuclear safety-critical industries, and the approach laid out in a recently developed IAEA guide on the subject.

The seminar will take place on 22 October 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Dr Sofia Guerra and Dr Eoin Butler will represent the findings of Adelard's study, and several distinguished international speakers will share the approaches adopted by their industries and lessons that have been learned. The seminar will include opportunities for discussion and sharing of good practices between representatives of different industries.

The seminar is free of charge for professionals in the energy sector that register by 4 October 2019.
