IEC/IEEE 60980-344:2020 describes methods for establishing seismic qualification procedures that will yield quantitative data to demonstrate that the equipment can meet its performance requirements. This document is applicable to electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control equipment/components that are used in nuclear facilities. This document provides methods and documentation requirements for seismic qualification of equipment to verify the equipment’s ability to perform its specified performance requirements during and/or after specified seismic demands. This document does not specify seismic demand or performance requirements. Other aspects, relating to quality assurance, selection of equipment, and design and modification of systems, are not part of this document. As seismic qualification is only a part of equipment qualification, this document is used in conjunction with IEC/IEEE 60780-323.
The seismic qualification demonstrates equipment’s ability to perform its safety function(s) during and/or after the time it is subjected to the forces resulting from at least one safe shutdown earthquake (SSE/S2). This ability is demonstrated by taking into account, prior to the SSE/S2, the ageing of equipment and the postulated occurrences of a given number of lower intensity operating basis earthquake (OBE/S1). Ageing phenomena to be considered, if specified in the design specification, are those which could increase the vulnerability of equipment to vibrations caused by an SSE/S2.

A static uninterruptible power supply (SUPS) has no rotating parts to perform its functions.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2005. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) the principal objective of this edition is to address the requirements on the static uninterruptible power supplies in nuclear power plants;
b) in addition to Instrumentation and Control (I&C) power supplies include all static uninterruptible power supplies;
c) emphasize that the static uninterruptible power supplies shall protect the connected equipment (loads) from transients on the on-site AC distribution system (the immunity concept);
d) in accordance with the defence-in-depth concept, this standard applies to static uninterruptible power supplies for all equipment, not only for equipment important to safety, with a graded approach to verification and validation;
e) addition of the requirement that, when batteries are connected in parallel under abnormal operating conditions, they shall be properly protected with isolation devices to avoid any failure that may impair more than one division of the uninterruptible power supply.

IEC 62954:2019 presents the requirements for the on-site emergency response facilities (referred to hereinafter as the “ERF”) which are to be used in case of incidents or accidents occurring on the associated Nuclear Power Plant (NPP).
The ERF consists of the Emergency Response Centre (ERC), the Technical Support Centre (TSC) and the Operational Support Centre (OSC).
It establishes requirements for the ERF features and ERF I&C equipment to:
· coordinate on-site operational efforts with respect to safety and radioprotection;
· optimize the design in terms of environment control, lighting, power supplies and access control of the ERF;
· enhance the identification and resolution of potential conflicts between the traditional operational means and emergency means (MCR/SCR and ERF, operating staff and emergency teams, operational procedures and emergency procedures);
· aid the identification and the enhancement of the potential synergies between the traditional operational means and emergency means.

c) to review the relevance of the standard to the IAEA safety guides and IEC SC 45A standards that have been published since IEC 60964:2009 was developed;
d) to clarify the role and meaning of “task analysis”,
e) to further delineate the relationships with derivative standards (i.e. IEC 61227, IEC 61771, IEC 61772, IEC 61839, IEC 62241 and others of relevance to the control room design);

IEC 62945:2018 provides test methods for the evaluation of image quality of computed tomography (CT) security-screening systems. The quality of data for automated analysis is the primary concern. Security screening systems are generally used to scan parcels, including luggage, for the presence of illicit items such as explosives, drugs, or other contraband. Many of the screening systems currently used, particularly in transportation security applications, are based on CT imaging technology.
