The design of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is now evolving towards new solutions devoted to reduce costs, and consequently objectives, with respect to the ones characterizing the first ITER Engineering Design Activities phase. Because the revision process will lead to new dimension-systems configuration, compliance with the safety requirements fixed for the reactor has to be demonstrated again for the new design, since deterministic accident analyses, generally speaking, will not be applicable any more without detailed verification. An exhaustive new set of reference accident sequences has then to be defined and, transient analyses performed for such sequences have to assure that the overall range of possible plant damages has been assessed against targets for releases and other criteria. This paper describes the work performed along these guidelines for the first wall cooling system: analogous analysis is in progress for the other ITER systems, as modified by the new design.
