Purpose and scope

The RCC-C code contains all the requirements for the design, fabrication and inspection of nuclear fuel assemblies and the different types of core components (rod cluster control assemblies, burnable poison rod assemblies, primary and secondary source assemblies and thimble plug assemblies).

The design, fabrication and inspection rules defined in RCC-C leverage the results of the research and development work pioneered in France, Europe and worldwide, and which have been successfully used by industry to design and build nuclear fuel assemblies and incorporate the resulting feedback.

The code's scope covers:

  • Generalities : definitions, standards, management system and treatment of non-conformities
  • Product design aspect for safety justification
  • Fabrication aspect :
    • requirements about materials used,
    • qualification requirements for assemblies,
    • qualification requirements for inspection and fabrication processes,
    • control methods,
    • certification of controllers.
  • Situations out of the boiler
