For the past 20 years, 87 issues have been published, containing more than 600 various materials, including more than 300 scientific papers belonging to the following speciality groups: 05.14.00 "Power engineering" (05.14.02 "Nuclear plants and electrical power systems", 05.14.03 "Nuclear power installations, including design") and 05.26.00 "Human activity safety" (05.26.02 "Safety in case of emergencies"; 05.26.03 "Fire and industrial safety"; 05.26.05 "Nuclear and radiation safety"; 05.26.06 "Chemical, biological and bacteriological safety").

The most important designation of the journal, which characterizes its specifics, is publication of the approved Federal Safety Regulations in the field of atomic energy use, as well as of the Safety Guides in atomic energy use and of the other regulatory legal acts. Such scientific papers are developed by the specialists of the scientific and technical support organization for safety regulation in atomic energy use, which employs, among others, the applicants for the scientific degrees.
