Inservice Inspection Programs Training

10CFR50.55a and 50.69 Engineering Programs, ASME Code, BPV Section XI, Augmented Inspection Programs

OVERVIEW

The Inservice Inspection (ISI) Programs Training course focuses on regulatory and code driven Inservice Inspection related programs covering both introductory bases and detailed requirements and is intended for Engineering Programs personnel that are responsible for managing, developing, implementing, and maintaining Inservice Inspection, Risk-Informed Inservice Inspection, Containment Inspection, System Pressure Testing, Repair/Replacement, and other related Augmented Inspection Programs.

COURSE CONTENT

Managing a power plant’s various Engineering Programs requires an in-depth understanding of the Regulatory and Code requirements, of the typical parts that comprise an efficient/compliant Program, and of the types of tools needed to optimize implementation and controls of the Program.  This course is designed to provide an initial overview of Inservice Inspection (ISI) Programs and the governing Regulations and ASME Code, BPV Section XI, as well as typical related augmented and owner inspection programs.  Detailed requirements for Inservice Inspection, Risk-Informed ISI, Containment Inspection, System Pressure Testing, and Repair/Replacement programs will be covered.  Regulatory requirements and guidance documents will be discussed, key components of a thorough program will be reviewed, and comprehensive practical applications and examples will be presented in an interactive manner.

Specific topics covered in this training include the following:

  • Background, history, and overview of the Inservice Inspection related Programs
  • Federal Regulations and the use of Section XI Code, Code Cases, and Interpretations
  • Regulatory Requirements including Conditions, Prohibitions, and Limitations
  • Seeking Relief from 10CFR50.55a and Section XI Code Requirements
  • Risk-Informed Inservice Inspection Program Options, Applications, and Optimization
  • Introduction to 10CFR50.69 Alternate Treatment Options and Implementation
  • Licensing Bases and Augmented Inspection Programs
  • Classification of Components for Application of Section XI Requirements
  • ISI Program Development Process and 10-Year Interval Implementation, Closeout, and Updates
  • Program Plans and Schedules, Program Support Documents, and Program Tools
  • Program Controls, Ownership, and Maintenance
  • Interface with other Engineering Programs (e.g., OM Code, App. J Leak Rate Testing, Buried Piping)
