After Fukushima nuclear accident, the Severe Accident Management Guidelines (SAMGs) are required according to the policy of the regulatory body in China. Most nuclear power plants (NPPs) in China adopt the technical approach of generic-SAMG of the Westinghouse Owner Group, consisting of severe accident control room guideline (SACRG), diagnostic flow chart (DFC), severe accident guideline (SAG), severe challenge status tree (SCST), severe challenge guideline (SCG), technical support center (TSC) long term monitoring guideline, and SAMG termination guideline (SAEG). A number of issues have been identified during the development of the SAMGs for M310+ NPPs, which is a dominant reactor type in China. The paper discussed these issues and identified some considerations for their resolution.
