Standard Guide for Establishing Procedures to Monitor the Performance of Safety Related Coatings in an Operating Nuclear Power Plant
|Publication Date:||3 October 1991|
1.1 This guide covers procedures for establishing a program to monitor Service Level I coating systems in operating nuclear power plants. Monitoring is an on going process of evaluating the condition of the in-service coating systems.
1.2 It is the intent of this guide to provide a recommended basis for establishing a coatings monitoring program, not to mandate a singular basis for all programs. Variations or simplifications of the program described in this guide may be appropriate for each operating nuclear power plant depending on their licensing commitments. Similar guidelines may be applicable for Service Level II and other areas outside containment.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
