Helium Cooled Pebble Bed (HCPB) blanket concept is one of the DEMO (Demonstration Power Plant) blanket concepts running for the final design selection. Concept relevant safety needs to be addressed at the early stage of the design. In this paper the preliminary safety studies for the current concept have been performed with respect to the FFMEA (Functional Failure Mode and Effect Analysis), the confinement strategy, identification of source terms, and selection of critical event sequences.
