Summary Report of the 369th RSK Meeting

Date: 
2004-02-12

This meeting concentrated on the ageing management at nuclear power plants and probabilistic methods and procedures regarding safety-related questions. The RSK discussed instructions prepared by its committees, how, in particular, it can be avoided for mechanical components, electrical components, I&C components, structural components, integrated operation management systems, and for the personnel competence that the safety level is reduced due to ageing processes by respective measures. The RSK intends to compile the result of these discussions in a recommendation that will also include the RSK statement of 10.01.2002.

Within the framework of the planned update of the RSK guidelines (summary report of the 368th RSK meeting), the RSK discusses the significance of probabilistics in supervision procedures by means of practical applications and the need for implementation in the new rules and regulations.

The RSK will continue the discussion on both topic areas.
