The Use of Records to Manage Risks Associated with the Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities

Abstract : The search for detailed information about the configuration and operating history of a nuclear installation is a key, initial step in dismantling this type of installation. Archives and related record groups can contribute significantly to reducing the risks associated with decommissioning. This article describes the methods applied by the archive unit of the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission at Marcoule in France in support of dismantling projects. The first section proposes some definitions of an archive. The second describes the unit's method, and illustrates its application to the record group of a nuclear facility. The third presents some examples of the operational use of archives in dismantling projects and the results obtained. The fourth section outlines the limits of the use of archives by comparing them with the other sources of information available to engineers.
