IMPORTANT NOTE. This Advanced Search capability is available to search the Safety Standards Series and most of the Nuclear Security Series publications. Use the topical search capability for these Series.
To facilitate the use of the search by topical areas you may click on the "Expand All" button. This will open all the different branches of the topical ontology so that you may search a specific term using the "Ctrl F" functionality of your browser (for desktops and laptops) or the equivalent search function for tablets and smartphones.
This search capability provides you with very sophisticated search criteria. You may select also a combination of several criteria. When the is displayed, it means that further sub-criteria are available should you wish to further refine your search. Because we have marked the e-version of the documents with these criteria as metadata, it is advised to use these primarily for defining your search and not the box with the full text search.
Should you then wish to refine your search, you can use the "back" function of your browser from the results tab. This will leads you back to the advanced search page and you may then select additional criteria (filters), for example specify a type of facility or activity and then search again.
