This PAS specifies requirements for the collaborative sharing of structured health and safety information throughout the project life-cycle.

The PAS supports the development of structured health and safety (H&S) data for all projects progressively from the outset.

The PAS provides guidance on how H&S information is generated, flows and can be used throughout the project and asset lifecycle.  Whilst all H&S risk information can be included within an information model, this PAS requires the contextualization and filtering of hazards and risks to prioritize the significant risks.

The PAS sets out a model for the application of H&S data and information-use through BIM processes and applications. The principles and requirements of this PAS can be applied equally to non-BIM projects.

The PAS specifies how to use H&S information in order to:

a) provide a safer and healthier environment for end-users;

b) mitigate the inherent hazards and risks across the whole project lifecycle;

c) result in improved construction safety performance, less incidents and associated impacts;

d) provide for clearer, more assured and relevant health and safety information to the ‘right-people’ at the ‘right time’;

e) reduce construction and operational costs.

 The exchange and use of H&S information is intended to support:

1) representation of the nature and characteristics of the project, site and built asset;

2) representation of H&S hazards, risks and associated factors;

3) the generalization, dissemination and re-use of H&S knowledge and experience.

The PAS is applicable to individuals and organizations that contribute to and influence the definition of design, construction, operation (use) and end of life of a built asset.

This PAS does not define or change the duties set out in any relevant statutory provisions.

This PAS can be applied in conjunction with the duty holder’s own management systems policies and arrangements.

This International Standard defines the essential technical requirements that must be addressed in the process of design and construction of Generation IV (GEN IV) nuclear reactors. It does not address operation, maintenance and in-service inspection of reactors.

Six reactor concepts are considered for GEN IV:

The Sodium Fast Reactor, The Lead Fast Reactor, The Gas Fast Reactor, The Very High Temperature Reactor, The SuperCritical Water Reactor and the Molten Salt Reactor.

Annex A details the main characteristics for the different concepts.

The scope of application of the standard is limited to mechanical components related to nuclear safety and to the prevention of the release of radioactive materials:

—    that are considered to be important in terms of nuclear safety and operability, and

—    that play a role in ensuring leaktightness, partitioning, guiding, securing and supporting,

—    that contain and/or are in contact with fluids (such as vessels, pumps, valves, pipes, bellows, box structures, heat exchangers, handling and driving mechanisms).

This part of ISO 21970 specifies the methods of preparation of test specimens and the standard test methods to be used in determining the properties of thermoplastic polyketone moulding and extrusion materials. Requirements for handling test material and/or conditioning both the test material before moulding and the specimens before testing are given.

Procedures and conditions for the preparation of test specimens in a specified state and procedures for measuring properties of the test materials from which these specimens are made are given. Properties and test methods which are suitable and necessary to characterize polyketone moulding and extrusion materials are listed.

The properties have been selected from the general test methods in, ISO 10350‑1. Other test methods in wide use for or of particular significance to these moulding and extrusion materials are also included in this part of ISO 21970, as are the designatory properties specified in part 1.

In order to obtain reproducible and comparable test results, it is necessary to use the methods of preparation and conditioning, the specimen dimensions and the test procedures specified in this part of ISO 21970. Values determined will not necessarily be identical to those obtained using specimens of different dimensions or prepared using different procedures.

Background noise exists ubiquitously in analytical instruments, whether or not a sample is applied to the instrument. This document is concerned with mathematical methodologies for estimating the minimum detectable value in case that the most predominant source of measurement uncertainty is background noise. The minimum detectable value can directly and mathematically be derived from the stochastic characteristics of the background noise.

This document specifies basic methods to

—       extract the stochastic properties of the background noise,

—       use the stochastic properties to estimate the standard deviation (SD) or coefficient of variation (CV) of the response variable, and

—       calculate the minimum detectable value based on the SD or CV obtained above.

The methods described in this document  are useful for checking the detection of a certain substance by various types of measurement equipment in which the background noise of the instrumental output predominates over the other sources of measurement uncertainty. Feasible choices are visible and ultraviolet absorption spectrometry, atomic absorption spectrometry, atomic fluorescence spectrometry, luminescence spectrometry, liquid chromatography and gas chromatography.
