ABSTRACT

After giving a brief reminder of the procedure applied in France for the licensing of the qualification tests and use of a new fuel type or design in a research reactor, the main safety aspects associated with these issues will be presented. As an example, we outline the safety assessment relating to the IRIS irradiation device used in Osiris reactor mainly for the qualification of silicied and UMo fuel plates.
