Second International Generic Ageing Lessons Learned (IGALL) Phase 6 Steering Committee Meeting

6 – 7 Dec 2023
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT2200073


In 2010, Member States launched an extrabudgetary programme known as the International Generic Ageing Lessons Learned (IGALL) programme with the objective to develop a general framework for effectively collecting experience and lessons learned on nuclear power plant (NPP) ageing management. The IGALL programme facilitates the exchange of experience accumulated in Member States that have operating NPPs, with regard to the identification, establishment, implementation and improvement of ageing management programmes (AMPs), taking into account the lessons learned worldwide for various types of reactors in order to assist Member States in implementing effective and harmonized ageing management.

Phase 1 of the IGALL programme was conducted in 2010–2013 and resulted in the development of an IAEA publication entitled Ageing Management for Nuclear Power Plants: International Generic Ageing Lessons Learned (IGALL) (Safety Reports Series No. 82, IAEA, Vienna, 2015) — further details on all deliverables of IGALL Phase 1 are available on the following public website: http://gnssn.iaea.org/NSNI/PoS/IGALL/SitePages/Home.aspx

Further development of the IGALL Safety Report and the associated database continued in 2014–2015 as IGALL Phase 2, in 2016–2017 as IGALL Phase 3, in 2018-2019 as IGALL Phase 4 and in 2020–2021 as Phase 5. Among IGALL Phase 6 objectives, the most substantial ones are: collect new AMPs and time limited ageing analyses (TLAAs) and update existing AMPs and TLAAs with references and operating experience in all programmes, enhance ageing management review (AMR) section with detailed information on best practices in AMR conduct, develop documents on regulatory practices for ageing management programme effectiveness review, and on review practices for reactor pressure vessel embrittlement, equipment qualification and containment ageing management.


This second meeting of the Steering Committee for Phase 6 of the IGALL Programme has the following primary objectives:

1. To check the progress in the programme achieved by the Working Groups under Phase 6;

2. To review and approve the results of the Working Groups;

3. To ensure that the Working Groups identify gaps and overlaps through the exchange of information on related work that is already under way or planned to avoid duplication of effort;

4. To identify activities that will enhance, update and improve the IGALL programme and that will promote understanding and use of the findings from the programme, and to prioritize those activities;

5. To ensure consistent quality, format, scope and level of detail of information in IGALL products;

6. To identify the need for follow-up activities to enhance tools for ageing management; and

7. To discuss any proposals of IGALL Working Group members and prioritize tasks for IGALL Phase 7.

Target Audience

Member States with operating nuclear power plants participating in the IGALL programme are invited to the meeting.
