CSNI Workshop

CSNI Workshop

Better Nuclear Plant Maintenance: Improving Human and Organisational Performance

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 3-5 October 2005

Topics

The following main topics were discussed during the workshop:

1. Maintenance-related events:

2. Licensee arrangements (including good practices) for planning, implementing and managing maintenance:

3. Development and implementation of guidance documents to improve maintenance programmes:

4. Regulatory requirements, concerns and approaches:

5. Recent trends and their impact on management of maintenance:

The workshop comprised a series of sessions commencing with one or more short presented papers (~ 20 minutes) followed by break-out and plenary discussions on the issues which arise. One session on regulatory expectations included short (10-15 minutes) presentations from different countries' regulatory bodies followed by discussion comparing these approaches.
