ABSTRACT
A brief historical account of the development of the domestic-regulatory base securing the integrity of the elements of nuclear power facilities and the contribution made by the Dollezhal Research and Development Institute of Power Engineering to the development of this base are presented. The factors impeding the adoption of updated regulatory requirements in the country, which correspond to the present stage of development of nuclear power and are necessary to develop innovative nuclear power units, are examined. It is noted that there is a need for immediate action to develop codes of regulations for incorporating regulatory-methodological and technical documents and eliminating inconsistencies in government oversight practice and implementation of the federal law on the regulation of technology. The results of a project completed in 2011 on a set of regulations and instructions for ensuring the integrity of the pressuremaintaining elements of sodium-cooled nuclear power reactors are presented. A similar document for VVER is to be completed in 2013.
