General provisions of safety of nuclear power plants (further - General provisions) are based on requirements of the legislation of Ukraine, consider recommendations of International Atomic Energy Agency and the international group of advisers for safety of nuclear installations at International Atomic Energy Agency, and also domestic and foreign experience of safe operation of nuclear power plants.

1.3. General provisions are obligatory for all legal entities and physical persons which are performing or going to perform the activities connected with placement, design, construction, commissioning, operation, removal from operation of nuclear power plants, and also with designing, production and delivery of elements for them.

1.4. General provisions do not extend to the systems of the treatment of the fulfilled nuclear fuel located out of the reactor building, and system of the treatment of radioactive waste which do not enter directly production cycle of nuclear power plant and also on objects which are in the territory of the platform of nuclear power plant and do not enter its project.

1.5. Entry into force of General provisions does not involve cancellation or change of effective periods of the licenses and permissions which are earlier issued to Gosatomregulirovaniya.

1.6. Amounts and terms of implementation of requirements of General provisions of rather operating power units of nuclear power plants and power units of nuclear power plants which are under construction, proved by the operating organization and are approved by Gosatomregulirovaniya. For power units of nuclear power plants which projects at the time of enforcement of General provisions are not approved in accordance with the established procedure requirements of General provisions shall be fulfilled in full.

1.7. In case of departure from requirements of regulations, rules and standards for nuclear and radiation safety which are approved by Gosatomregulirovaniya of Ukraine the operating organization performs their approval of Gosatomregulirovaniya.

In these General provisions terms and determinations are used in the following values:

2.1. Emergency - the condition of AS which is characterized by violation of limits and/or conditions of safe operation which did not turn into accident.

2.2. Accident - breakdown of service of AS in case of which there was exit of radioactive materials and/or ionizing radiation in the quantity exceeding the limits of safe operation determined by the project. Accident is characterized by initial event, ways of course and effects.

2.3. Administration of AS - heads and other officials of AS who are given in accordance with the established procedure the rights and to whom obligations and responsibility for safety are assigned during construction, commissioning, operation and removal from operation of AS.
