International Journal of Risk Assessment and Management (IJRAM), Vol. 8, No. 1/2, 2008

Abstract: An effort has been launched in China to construct a pilot commercial plant using high temperature reactors. This paper presents the major results of accident consequence assessment performed in the framework of a preliminary environmental impact evaluation. Based on this, the implications of this consequence calculation for emergency planning are discussed. Finally, the current regulatory requirements on emergency zoning around nuclear power plants in China and some discussions about the establishment of emergency planning zones around the Taiwan Nuclear Power Plant imported from Russia are also briefly described in this paper.
