It presents high level considerations for the inspection of selected programmatic areas including plant operations, radiation protection, fire protection and maintenance activities at nuclear power plants (NPPs). The publication focuses on the regulatory inspection. This publication outlines the main aspects and issues to be considered when developing and improving in–service inspection effectiveness in nuclear power plants (NPPs).

It also provides a status of in-service inspection practices in NPPs in selected IAEA Member States, evaluating criteria for effective traditional in–service inspection and introducing the concept of risk–informed in–service inspection.

This chapter addresses the in-service inspection (ISI) and testing of SGs, excluding the tube bundle inspection which is presented in Chapter The discussion will be centered on vertical shell U-tube recirculating evaporators but some techniques may also apply to once-through SGs and horizontal SGs.

Abstract: This chapter presents current regulations to ensure safety and reliability of ageing nuclear power plants. Management of ageing in structures, systems and components requires an understanding of ageing mechanisms and how to detect and control them through surveillance, feedback of operating experience and maintenance programmes.
