RCC-CW codes are published by AFCEN.
RCC-CW codes (Rules for design and construction of PWR nuclear civil works) are used to design and build the civil structures of nuclear power plants.
RCC-CW was published in 2010 and 2012 as ETC-C for EPR nuclear power plant.
The most recent RCC-CW editions (2015 to 2019) can be applied to PWR projects.
This training session explains the objectives and the applicability of a nuclear code for civil works and give an overview of the content of the RCC-CW.
The course is delivered in English.
The purpose of this 1-day training course is to introduce and outline the AFCEN RCC-CW codes.
