  Publication Information
To develop, review, and maintain, for publication in Section XI of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, rules relating to pressure integrity governing inservice inspection of Class 1, 2, 3, MC and CC pressure retaining components and their supports and core support structures in light water cooled, gas cooled, and liquid metal cooled nuclear power plants, and relating to containment integrity of spent fuel storage and transportation canisters. This charter is intended to cover individual components and complete nuclear power plants that have met all the requirements of the Construction Code. The areas covered include responsibilities, provisions for accessibility, examination methods, techniques, and procedures, personnel qualifications, frequency of inspection, records and evaluation and disposition of inspection results. This charter includes the application of provisions for repair/replacement activities and procedures for analytical evaluation of plant operating events even when neither is associated with disposition of the results of inservice inspection. For risk-informed technology applications only, the requirements may be extended to pressure retaining components, containments, and their supports that impact the safety of the plant.
