The OECD/NEA Committee on Safety of Nuclear Installations (CSNI) addressed the issue of modifications at a workshop on “Modifications at Nuclear Power Plants – Operating Experience, Safety Significance and Role of Human Factors”. This workshop was undertaken as a joint effort of the Working Group on Operating Experience (WGOE) and the Special Experts Group on Human and Organisational Factors (SEGHOF), and it was held at the OECD Headquarters in Paris on 6-8 October 2003. The initiative to organise the workshop was taken by the WGOE and the SEGHOF based on findings from events and incidents due to modifications at nuclear power plants and weaknesses experienced in modification processes.
