Since its foundation in 1997, the Main Committee on Power Generation Facility Codes, MC-PGFC, of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, JSME, has issued a number of nuclear codes including the rules on design and construction and the rules on fitness-for-service for nuclear power plants. Some of these JSME nuclear codes have been endorsed by the regulatory body, and are now utilized in the regulatory processes of the actual plants. Among these nuclear codes recently published is the “rules on design and construction for fast reactors”. It includes as its main body design rules on class 1 components for elevated temperature services. This paper overview the main features of the code.
