AFCEN nuclear codes for Civil Works (ETC-C and RCC-CW) : general introduction

Génie civil pour le nucléaire


The ETC-C and RCC-CW are the codes used to design and build the civil structures of nuclear power plants. The ETC-C (EPR Technical Code for Civil Works) is specific to EPR nuclear power plant whereas the RCC-CW (Rules for design and construction of PWR nuclear civil works) can be applied to others projects. Both these codes were published by AFCEN (French Association for design, construction and surveillance rules of nuclear power plant components), respectively in 2012 and 2015.

This training session explains the objectives and the applicability of a nuclear code for civil works and gives an overview of the content of these two codes.

The course is delivered in English.


The purpose of this 1-day training course is to introduce and outline the new ETC-C & RCC-CW 2015 Code.
