Background Information

GSG-2 was published in 2011. Since its publication nearly 10 years ago, key related Safety Requirements have been revised (including GS-R-2 and Safety Series No 115, which were published as GSR Part 7, and GSR Part 3). In the case of GSG-2, some of the guidance and recommendations have been upgraded to requirements in subsequent publications.

Other topics, such as the protection strategy and default operational intervention levels have been documented in greater detail in EPR series publications including EPR-NPP PPA 2013, EPR-NPP OILs 2017 and EPR-Protection Strategy (under development) and EPR-RAD OILs (under development). Additional discussions are ongoing within EPReSC on how best to comprehensively address further guidance involving some of the above topics.

As such, GSG-2 should be revised to provide greater consistency with other publications and to provide updated guidance and recommendations on criteria for preparedness and response for a nuclear or radiological emergency, including the methodology and implementation of reference level, generic criteria and operational criteria. a, such as observables, emergency action levels and, when appropriate3, operational intervention levels (OILs) for facilities and activities in different emergency preparedness categories.

The scope of the publication:

  • remains the same as GSG-2, including guidance on how to implement criteria but removing the specific values and definitions which have been upgraded to requirements since the publication of GSG-2;
  • includes criteria for initiating protective actions and other response actions to protect workers, emergency workers, helpers and the public in a nuclear or radiological emergency;
  • includes all facilities and activities, and all emergency preparedness categories as defined in GSR Part°7.

The objective of the document is to present a coherent set of criteria for supporting decision making regarding protective actions and other response actions necessary to meet the goals of emergency response defined in GSR Part 7. The document will include an emphasis on operational criteria including operational intervention levels, emergency actions levels, and observables/indicators.
