Working group on Integrity of Components and Structures (IAGE)
Working Group on Integrity of Components and Structures has a general
mandate to reflect on the logical basis for the maintenance of the integrity
of nuclear power plant components, systems and structures, and to propose general principles
on the optimal ways of dealing with challenges to integrity - in particular
those from ageing. Specifically the mandate will be:
- The working group shall constitute a forum to exchange views, information and experience on generic technical aspects of integrity and ageing of components and structures, and review, as necessary, national and international programmes concentrating on research, operational aspects and regulation.
- The working group shall stimulate, in relevant technical areas, new research and recommend possible international co-operative projects.
- The working group shall develop common technical positions on specific integrity issues of operating and new nuclear power plants, and identify areas where further work is needed.
- The working group shall discuss the potential impact of ageing and other challenges to integrity on the safety, regulation and operability of operating and new nuclear power plants.
