Engineering Design and Safety Basis Inspection Criteria, Inspection Activities, and Lines of Inquiry (HSS CRAD 64-19, Rev. 0)
The engineering design and safety basis inspection will evaluate the effectiveness of programs and processes for the design and safety basis of selected safety structures, systems, and components (SSCs) of a nuclear facility. The nuclear facility may be an existing facility, a major modification to an existing facility, or a new facility under construction. Accordingly, the safety basis for the facility, for example, a documented safety analysis (DSA) or a preliminary documented safety analysis (PDSA), may not have been completed and approved by the DOE. The inspection criteria, activities, and lines of inquiry are, therefore, intended to be tailored to the review objectives.
