Commissioning is one of the key steps towards putting into service a new nuclear facility, or a new system, structure or component within an existing facility. Commissioning activities need to be planned early in the design and procurement process, with careful consideration of eventual acceptance criteria and test methods. This publication describes commissioning in its basic form, the commissioning process specific to nuclear power plants, the relevant management system requirements, typical organizational models and critical human resources issues. It also provides details on experience and lessons learned in Member States. The publication will be of use to all stakeholders involved in the commissioning of nuclear power plants, including owner/operators, contractors, engineers, regulatory bodies and vendors.
