Various aspects of the siting, design, construction and operation of nuclear power plants to which the Atomic Energy Commission gives attention in its licensing activities are discussed, together with the reasons why they are considered important to public safety. This includes the measures taken to assure the integrity of the nuclear fuel and primary coolant system under all operating conditions; to provide adequate means of coping with emergency situations; and to limit the consequences of accidents to levels which do not endanger the health and safety of the public.
