SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The IIEPI is being developed as part of the NRC's Industry Trends Program (ITP) to provide a more risk-informed indicator of the industry safety performance of operating power reactors for initiating events. The indicators in the ITP are used by the NRC to report to Congress on industry safety performance as part of NRC's annual Performance and Accountability Report. Information on the ITP may be found in Start Printed Page 39601SECY-03-0057, “FY 2002 Results of the Industry Trends Program for Operating Power Reactors and Status of Ongoing Development,” which is available electronically on the NRC's Web page at http://www.nrc.gov/​reading-rm/​doc-collections/​commission/​secys/​2003/​.

The draft technical report describes the technical approach and characteristics of the IIEPI, as well as an approach to establishing thresholds for the indicator. The following topics in the draft report will be discussed during the workshop:

  • Industry Trends Program and Framework for IIEPI
  • Technical Approach to IIEPI
  • IIEPI Characteristics
  • Technical Discussion
  • Implementation Discussion
