nuclear risk management coordinating committee
MEMBERS

ASME, ANS, IEEE, Owners Groups, EPRI, NEI, DOE, and NRC

Committee can also include interested standards developing organizations, such as ASTM, NFPA, and AISC

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES

Coordinate codes and standards activities related to risk management for current and new nuclear power plants, nuclear facilities, and the transportation and storage of nuclear material

Ensure that codes and standards associated with risk management, and their underlying principles, are consistent and compatible

CURRENT ACTIONS

Facilitates coordinating activities between ASME, ANS, and IEEE on risk- informed initiatives

Acts on inputs from industry and regulating organizations relative to the use of risk methods in codes and standards

Nuclear Risk Management Coordinating Committee
jcnrm charter
JCNRM CHARTER

To develop, revise and maintain standards and guides on probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) and related risk management techniques supporting risk-informed and performance-based applications for nuclear facilities.

jcnrm scope
JCNRM SCOPE

The development of standards and guidance that establish risk criteria and methods for PRA, risk assessment, and risk management for nuclear facilities.

Review of standards as requested by other American Nuclear Society (ANS) and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards committees, and other standards development organizations on related topics to identify inconsistency, lack of integration of risk concepts and duplication, as appropriate.

subcommittee maintenance
Subcommittee Maintenance

Chair Paul Amico/Vice Chairs Andrea Maioli, Gareth Parry

Working Groups: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Parts 5-10

Project Teams: 8 PTs addressing groups of cross cutting issues.

Primary focus 2014 – 2016 is new edition of RA-S. Expect to inherit new standards and WGs beginning in 2016

subcommittee on risk applications
Subcommittee on Risk Applications

Chair Ken Kiper/Vice Chair Stanley Levinson

Project Teams - New PT on interface with BNCS Board Committee Nuclear Quality Assurance (NQA) to facilitate and improve 50.69 implementation

Primary Focus 2014-2016 - Establish POCs with key stakeholder organizations & national consensus committees with risk initiatives

asme bncs risk management strategic plan
MISSION

Factor risk, as well as performance, into all ASME Nuclear Codes and Standards, as appropriate, to further ensure, on a worldwide basis, that they protect public health and safety and meet the needs of users

ACTION PLAN

Identify and track short-term (1-2 years) and long-term (3+ years) risk-informed initiatives within the Committee on Board Operations and across all BNCS Committees

PRA STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT

Identify needs to enhance or develop PRA Standards to support applications defined in the action plan

UPDATES

Plan is updated and approved at each BNCS meeting (~4 months) and is then placed on the ASME website for public access

ASME BNCS Risk Management Strategic Plan
ans standards board risk management strategic plan
The American Nuclear Society Standards Board (SB) has established the Risk Informed and Performance Based Principles Policy Committee (RP3C) as a committee that reports directly to the SB.

The RP3Cis responsible for the identification and oversight of the development and implementation of the ANS Risk Informed and Performance Based Standards Plan that establishes the approaches, priorities, responsibilities and schedules for implementation of risk informed and performance based principles in American Nuclear Society (ANS) standards.

The RP3C is also responsible for reviewing standards being developed by other standards developing organizations as assigned by the ANS SB on related topics to ensure consistency.

ANS Standards Board Risk Management Strategic Plan
regulatory infrastructure
Regulatory Infrastructure
  • RG 1.200 endorses PRA Standards
  • Other supporting RGs for applications are
    • RG 1.174, Risk Informed Licensing Changes
    • RG 1.175, Risk Informed Inservice Inspection
    • RG 1.177, Risk Informed Technical Specifications
    • RG 1.201, Risk Informed Categorization & Treatment of SSCs
    • RG 1.205, 50.48(c) Fire Protection, NFPA 805
    • RG 1.206, 10CFR52, New Plants
use of pra results in regulatory applications
NRC has adopted a risk-informed approach to use of PRA in regulatory decision-making (Risk Informed Regulation)

The philosophy is discussed, in the contextof changes to licensing basis, in RG 1.174

PRA analyses are one, but not the only, input to the decision

NUREG-2150 describes a proposed risk management regulatory framework

opportunities to participate
Opportunities to Participate

Subcommittees

Working Groups (permanent JCNRM technical groups)

Project Teams (temporary teams chartered to address or resolve a specific short term activity)

insights
INSIGHTS

Codes & Standards are the consensus mechanism to develop guidance and requirements for industry use and subsequent regulatory endorsement

Many areas need attention and further development

Opportunities to help ensure that technical requirements ultimately to be imposed on Users are accurate, efficient, and effective

What is contained in C&S typically become requirements (participation is important)

Good opportunity for younger professionals to have a voice in their future
