Scope:

Meteorological hazards are associated with extreme meteorological conditions and with rarely occurring hazardous meteorological phenomena. Hydrological hazards are associated with external flooding events, including a number of associated phenomena, and low water level conditions. The objective of this Safety Guide is to provide recommendations and guidance on how to comply with the safety requirements on assessing such hazards associated with meteorological and hydrological phenomena. Hazards that could affect the safety of nuclear installations have to be considered in the selection and evaluation of sites, in the design of new installations, and in the operational stages of existing installations. This Safety Guide provides recommendations on how to determine the corresponding design bases for these natural hazards and it recommends measures for protection of the site against hazards of this type.

This Safety Guide is intended for use by regulatory bodies, which are responsible for establishing regulatory requirements, for designers of nuclear installations and for operating organizations, which are directly responsible for the safety of installations and for the protection of people and the environment from harmful effects of ionizing radiation.
