Purpose and scope

RCC-E describes the rules for designing and building electrical assemblies and I&C systems for pressurised water reactors.

The code's scope covers:

  • Architecture and the associated systems.
  • Materials engineering and the qualification procedure for normal and accidental environmental conditions.
  • Facility engineering and management of common cause failures (CCFs) (electrical and I&C) and electromagnetic interference.
  • Practices for testing and inspecting electrical characteristics.
  • Quality assurance requirements supplementing ISO 9001.
