Technical Meeting on the Justification of Commercial Industrial Instrumentation and Control Equipment for Nuclear Power Plant Applications

19 – 22 Jun 2018
Toronto, Canada
Event code: EVT1702864

The justification of the suitability and correctness of commercial industrial I&C equipment for its intended use in nuclear power plant (NPP) applications should confirm that it meets the functional requirements, that systematic faults are minimized, and that no anticipated external effect can result in an unsafe operation of its principal functions.

The purpose of the meeting is to serve as an international forum for sharing best practices and strategies used in the justification of commercial industrial I&C equipment for NPP applications, as well as for discussing the challenges and issues that need to be resolved in this area.

An additional goal of the meeting is to disseminate information on the lessons learned through the ongoing process of developing a new IAEA Nuclear Energy Series report, provisionally entitled Justification of Commercial Industrial Instrumentation and Control Equipment for Nuclear Power Plant Applications and to review the latest draft of this document.

Objectives

The meeting has the following primary objectives:

  • Provide an international forum for presentations and discussions on the subject of the meeting;
  • Strengthen Member States’ capabilities for improved understanding of the justification of commercial industrial I&C equipment for application in NPPs;
  • Disseminate the experience gained while developing the new IAEA Nuclear Energy Series report provisionally entitled Justification of Commercial Industrial Instrumentation and Control Equipment for Nuclear Power Plant Applications;
  • Review the draft version of that report; and
  • Support the IAEA in defining future activities in the field of I&C applications at NPPs.

Presentations are invited on all approaches that are related to the justification of commercial industrial I&C equipment for NPP applications. A list of example topics appropriate for the meeting is included in the Information Sheet.

Participation

Due to the topics addressed at the meeting, participation is limited to IAEA Member States that currently operate NPPs or are constructing their first NPP units. Participation is solicited from representatives of NPPs and regulatory bodies, utilities, technical support organizations, developers, vendors, research organizations and justification assessors engaged in the field of I&C equipment design and the application of such equipment at NPPs. To ensure maximum effectiveness in the exchange of information, participants should be persons actively involved in the subject matter of the meeting.
