The IAEA has been active at providing CM guidance to nuclear entities outside of the USA. In 2010 the Agency issued two new CM documents: Safety Series Report 65, “Application of Configuration Management in Nuclear Power Plants” and TECDOC-1651, “Information Technology for Nuclear Power Plant Configuration Management.” This presentation will provide an overview of these documents and establish the linkage to current USA CM guidance.
NPP Version 1.0
Design Package 11-00001
NPP Version 2.0
Plant Configuration Management”
The TECDOC should be reviewed and referenced during the review of design basis programs and to assess the state of the NPP design basis library and engineering change control system.
It is also recommended as a checklist for design basis review during engineering change control and modification activities.
The document is recommended as a handbook for preparation of specifications, RFQ’s and purchasing bid media for development or purchases of enterprise CM, MRO and ERP software solutions
The document also aids in selection of supporting applications such as engineering design and 3D CAD environments, document management applications, content management and IMS support systems and other 1st- and 2nd-tier software.
Safety Series Report No. 65
Title: “Application of Configuration Management in
Nuclear Power Plants”
Requested by: Nuclear Safety Department
Sponsor: Csila Toth
Authors: R. Harris, K. Freeland
Applies to: NPP’s and Nuclear Facilities during design, construction and operation
Commenced: Summer 2008
Published: January 2011
Available from: IAEA Publications website
Describe the requirements and business processes in NPP’s to develop and implement a comprehensive configuration management program, processes and procedures.
Includes premise, requirements, processes and resources to establish and maintain a CM program for NPP’s.
Replaces TECDOC-1335, “Configuration Management for Nuclear Power Plants”, published in 2003.
This Safety Series Report was published in the new IAEA Report Format, in compliance with the new four-tier document hierarchy structure.
This document should be reviewed and referenced during development and when writing process plans and procedures for NPP CM implementation, review, STAR Assessment or Audit.
May also be utilized to assess contractor and vendor/supplier CM programs and related taxonomies.
