Description: This is the protection against the consequences of an inadvertent nuclear chain reaction, by preventing the reaction. This is achieved by controlling one or more factors of the system within subcritical limits. The achievement of nuclear criticality safety depends on controlling either the mass of the fissile materials or neutron behavior. It ensures both preventive measures to maintain process conditions and mitigative measures to reduce the overall risk of nuclear criticality. The ‘tools’ used to assess the critical state of a system are essentially the same as those used for reactor physics but their successful application requires some knowledge of the nuclear fuel cycle, chemistry, plant design and processes, regulations and standards, etc. Working Party on Criticality (WPC) and Critical Competence Framework (CCF) were also discussed. Criticality safety management is an applied subject for managing the risks inherent in handing fissile materials.
