Purpose of the database
Purpose of the Database

  • Develop a modern searchable relational database to catalog citations of consensus standards and various NRC guidance documents

  • The database is intended to be used by the nuclear industry and NRC to assess currently cited standards to support certification of designs and development of licensing documents

  • The database is intended to be used by Standard Development Organizations (SDOs) to identify where and which version of their standards are cited in regulatory documents


Background
Background

  • NRC funded NIST to develop a standards database in 2011; NIST funded a contractor for the work.

  • The contractor conducted data mining of Regulatory Guides (RGs) to identify the standards and determine how they were endorsed or referenced.

  • The number of pages in the RGs to be reviewed was voluminous. At the rate of data mining, the task would have taken several years to complete (and by then would have been somewhat out of date again). This was reported by the Standards Database TG at the July and November 2012 NESCC.

  • In December 2012, NRC and NIST agreed to abandon the current approach.


Proposed options
Proposed Options

  • The NRC believes this database would have value to both external stakeholders and NRC staff. Currently, the NRC staff is looking for other options to collect data and build this database.

  • Option A: The NRC is exploring the possibility of doing the task in-house

    • Commercial contractor for data mining

    • Data mining tool thru the NRC’s Office of Information Services

    • Maintenance of database existing contract with IHS (Information Handling Services)

    • Funding under multi-year sequester a challenge

  • Option B: A “Wiki” approach using “crowdsourcing“ from the SDO community – you!

Gap Analysis approach:

  • Identify the current version of the standard(s) that are listed in section C of the guides. These are the “endorsed” standards.

  • Identify if there is a later version of the standard.

  • Describe the significant changes between the current and the later version of the standards.

  • Identify a list of the standard(s) that SDOs believe should be endorsed by the NRC staff and prioritize them (preferably identify 5 standards for each SDO thought to be the most significant and list them in the last column of the spreadsheet).


Requested specific information in the spreadsheet from the sdos
Requested Specific Information in the Spreadsheet from the SDOs

  • NRC Regulatory Guides (left side of spreadsheet):

    • The regulatory guide Information is provided to you by the NRC staff

  • SDOs could identify standard(s) in the regulatory guide and answer the information in the spreadsheet:

    • Was the standard(s) fully endorsed (check section C of the guide)

    • Was the standard partially endorsed?

    • Was the standard referenced in the guide?

      d. What is the Title and Date of the standard(s) as shown in the guide?


Requested specific information in the spreadsheet from the sdos1
Requested Specific Information in the Spreadsheet from the SDOs

  • SDOs could identify the latest version of standard(s)

    • Title of the latest standard

    • Date of the latest standard

  • SDOs could record the changes from the version of the standard included in the guide and the latest standard

  • SDOs could identify standard(s) that they recommend for NRC endorsement (choose top 5 standards)




Usage of the i nformation
Usage of the Information

  • Post the spreadsheet on the NESCC and/or NRC web sites

  • The NRC staff may submit the collected information to a contractor for further development of the database

  • The NRC staff may use the information in house until funding becomes available
