Abstract

The paper describes the results from a sub-project within a Nordic research project dealing with probabilistic risk criteria for nuclear power plants (NPP). In order to provide perspective on the project’s detailed treatment of probabilistic risk criteria for NPP:s, and to make it possible to relate these to risk criteria defined and applied in other safety-critical industries, criteria defined and used within the European railway and offshore oil and gas industries have been discussed in some detail and compared to NPP criteria.
