Fires present a special risk to nuclear plants because they can knock out cables that control-room operators need to safely cool down a reactor. N293-12 - Fire Protection For Nuclear Power Plants standard provides the minimum fire protection requirements for the design, construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning of nuclear power plants (NPP), including structures, systems and components that directly support the plant and the protected area. This updated 2012 edition will enhance safety, provide an opportunity to reduce operational costs

This standard is “technology neutral” and addresses the needs of a wider nuclear community by expanding its use to non-CANDU NPP technologies. This standard applies to plants in which requirements are referenced as a license condition by the nuclear regulator.
