After establishment of national integration design group for magnetic confinement fusion reactor in 2011, China has started its concept design activities for China Fusion Engineering Testing Reactor (hereinafter referred to as CFETR). According to the design goals of CFETR, it will be a nuclear facility contain self-sustained tritium cycle loop. As a nuclear facility, in order to assure the safety and reliability of design results of CFETR, all design should be based on existing codes and standards, or some special specifications. This paper will give introductions to existing major codes and standards in the field of magnetic confinement fusion, including the codes published by American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the standards published by French society for design and construction and in-service inspection rules for nuclear islands (AFCEN), the technical documents issued by International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) Organization, the standards published by nuclear industry and relating industries in China, and so on. After taking into account the requirements of the CFETR and the status of standardization of nuclear industry in China, the paper will analyze and discuss the considerations on how to select applicable design codes and standards for CFETR.
