The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by technical experts and safety authorities. This third edition of The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle presents an up-to-date analysis of the safety aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle.

North Korea (NK) is suspected of having produced material usable for mfg. nuclear bombs. On October 21, Ô94, the U.S. & NK concluded an agreement known as the Agreed FrameworkÓ (AF) to address the threats posed by NK's nuclear program. This report determines whether: the AF is a nonbinding political agree.; the U.S. could be held financially liable for a nuclear accident at the NK reactor site; NK has obligated itself to upgrade its electric power dist. system; & the agree. is consistent with the laws governing the transfer of U.S. nuclear technology.

After a 1975 fire at the Browns Ferry nuclear plant in Alabama threatened the unitżs ability to shut down safely, the Nuclear Regulatory Comm. (NRC) issued prescriptive fire safety rules for commercial nuclear units. However, nuclear units with different designs and different ages have had difficulty meeting these rules and have sought exemptions to them. In 2004, NRC began to encourage the nationżs 104 nuclear units to transition to a less prescriptive, risk-informed approach that will analyze the fire risks of individual nuclear units. This report examines: (1) the number and causes of fir
