Summary Report of the 370th RSK Meeting

Date: 
2004-03-04

At this meeting, the RSK concluded its previous discussions on the applicability of corrosion indications at the American 'Davis Besse' nuclear power plant to nuclear power plants in Germany. Although the circumstances and conditions as existing at Davis Besse are not directly applicable to German nuclear power plants (summary report of the 367th RSK meeting), the RSK arrived at the conclusion to recommend some measures by way of precaution, in view of the great safety significance of the event, which, above all, intensify the controls with regard to leakages and corrosion phenomena.

The discussion of the drafts on ageing management was continued. For the updates of the RSK guidelines, the RSK discussed the surveys submitted by its committees and interfaces regarding future contributions of the Commission on Radiological Protection (SSK). The discussions will be continued for both topics.
