It is also pertinent to consider the necessity for including malevolent scenarios, including sabotage, among Postulated Initiating Events (PIEs). These scenarios could manifest themselves either as an internal event, or as an external event, or as a combination of both. 7]. 2. 6] makes the following stipulations in the context of combination of PIEs: “Where combinations of randomly occurring individual events could credibly lead to anticipated operational occurrences or accident conditions, they shall be considered in the design.

There is therefore, a need to define the scope of off-site emergency planning activities for advanced reactors, consistent with the ability of these reactor designs to meet enhanced safety objectives. This need also emerges from the study carried out in the context of modular high temperature gas cooled reactors (MHTGRs). 12], the following comments are made in this context: “For existing plants, the term ‘severe accidents” is widely associated with significant melting of the core and large releases of radionuclides from the reactor vessel.
