SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NUREG-1946, “Inservice Testing of Pumps and Valves, and Inservice Examination and Testing of Dynamic Restraints (Snubbers) at Nuclear Power Plants, Draft Report for Comment” provides updated information on applicable regulations for testing of pumps and valves. The information in NUREG-1482, “Guidelines for Inservice Testing at Nuclear Plants,” Revision 0, issued April 1995, and Revision 1, issued January 2005, has described these topics in the past. This NUREG report replaces Revision 0 and Revision 1 of NUREG-1482, and is applicable, unless stated otherwise, to all editions and addenda of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Code of Operation and Maintenance of Nuclear Power Plants (OM Code), which Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 50.55a(b) incorporates by reference. NUREG-1946 also includes information related to inservice examination and testing of dynamic restraints (snubbers). In addition, the NUREG discusses other inservice test program topics such as the NRC process for review of the OM Code, conditions on the use of the OM Code, and interpretations of the OM Code.
