Organization: ANS
Publication Date: 1 January 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 24
scope:

This standard identifies and establishes the content of technical specifications (TS) for research and test reactors. Areas addressed are definitions, safety limits, limiting safety system settings, limiting conditions for operation, surveillance requirements, design features, and administrative controls. Sufficient detail is incorporated so that applicable specifications can be derived or extracted.

Purpose

It is recognized that because of the special nature and wide range of research reactors, no general standard can be applied without thoughtful interpretation and that not all requirements are applicable to every facility.Accordingly, incorporation of various requirements of this standard into technical specifications may range from detailed application to unqualified inapplicability. Technical specifications may also be referred to as technical safety requirements (TSR).

The technical specifications represent an agreement between the owner or operator, or both, and the responsible authority on administrative controls, equipment availability, and operational parameters.

Specific limitations and equipment requirements for safe reactor operation and for dealing with abnormal situations, typically derived from the Safety Analysis Report (SAR), are called specifications. These specifications represent a comprehensive envelope of safe operation. Only those operational parameters and equipment requirements directly related to verifying and preserving that safe envelope shall be listed. Procedures to meet the requirements of these technical specifications shall not be part of the technical specifications.
