ICS Code (Nuclear power plants. Safety): 27.120.20
scope:

This Standard specifies examination and testing requirements that apply to the work of any organization participating in the construction, fabrication, or installation of concrete containment structures, which includes, but is not limited to, the following structural and non-structural elements:

a) concrete;

b) reinforcement (pre-stressed and non-pre-stressed);

c) steel (e.g., liner, embedded parts, anchors);

d) non-metallic liners and coating systems;

e) joint sealants; and

f) elements necessary to support containment structure (e.g., foundations).

This Standard specifies personnel qualification requirements for work pertaining to the examination and testing of concrete containment structures for nuclear power plants.

This Standard is applicable to existing and new nuclear power plants. It is not the intent that the requirements of this Standard be applied retroactively to existing nuclear power plants, unless as agreed to by the authority having jurisdiction.

This Standard may be applied, as appropriate, to nuclear facilities under the jurisdiction of the Government of Canada's Nuclear Safety and Control Act.

This Standard is used in concert with the other CSA N287 series standards, as applicable.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
