Nuclear facilities

Nuclear facilities

Nuclear facilities are defined according to Act No. 263/2016 Coll., the Atomic Act:

  • Constructions and plants that include a nuclear reactor using the nuclear reaction
  • Facilities for the production, processing, compression and storage of nuclear materials, except for uranium ore treatment plants and uranium concentrate warehouses
  • Disposal facilities for radioactive waste, with the exception of disposal facilities containing exclusively natural radionuclides
  • Storage facilities for radioactive waste with the activity exceeding the values specified in the implementing regulation

Nuclear facilities (in particular, nuclear power plants) consist of systems and components that are subject to different relevant groups of legal regulations (Act No. 22/97 Coll., on technical requirements for products and implementing Government Orders, Act No. 263/2016 Coll., the Atomic Act and related implementing decrees issued by the State Office for Nuclear Safety / SÚJB)

Components and systems categorized as selected equipment for nuclear facilities shall be subject to conformity assessment in accordance with Decree No. 358/2016 Coll., issued by the State Office for Nuclear Safety (SÚJB). General legislation applies to the other components and systems, i.e. relevant Government Orders under Act No. 22/1997 Coll., as amended.
Conformity assessment of so-called selected equipment and their parts and materials is carried out by the authorized person AO 248, authorized for this purpose by the Czech Office for Standards, Metrology and Testing (ÚNMZ). TÜV NORD Czech, s.r.o. is authorized for all conformity assessment procedures and other acts in accordance with Decree No. 358/2016 Coll. by the Czech Office for Standards, Metrology and Testing (ÚNMZ), on requirements for assurance of quality and technical safety and assessment and verification of conformity of selected equipment.

The conformity assessment system is very similar to that of pressure equipment in accordance with Directive No. 2014/68/EC (see Pressure Equipment), but with difference that this area is not harmonized with the European Law and therefore it is not possible to transfer to the full extent the competence of authorized persons to other companies in the European Union.

In addition to the activities of an authorized person in this area, we also perform inspection activities, assessment and certification of manufacturing competency according to the specific scope of production (the production plan of the organization) and the related legislation and the applicable technical regulations (technical codes).


On 14 – 16 May 2018 you can find us at ATOMEXPO 2018 in Sochi – stand No. C21

ATOMEXPO International Forum Sochi (Russian Federation) is one of the most important meetings of the key players in the nuclear power sector organized over the past 10 years by ROSATOM.

Why do we participate?
Security is a common thread across a number of planned nuclear power plants projects. For us it is an issue of utmost importance. We supervise NPPs all over the world, from construction planning to the facility being decommissioned. We are one of the most respected authorities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in the area of supervision over NDT and welding. In terms of experienced experts (Level III NDT experts and ASME inspectors) we take the leading role in the sector.

What kind of assistance do we provide to the suppliers to the nuclear power sector?
Why are the operators of nuclear power plants using us?
