WANO performance indicators are important indicators of nuclear safety globally. They display nuclear power plants' performance status in terms of nuclear safety, power generation management, power plant equipment reliability, effectiveness and industrial safety in a quantitative manner. The indicators are used to monitor the operational status of nuclear power plants and to identify any necessary improvements.
