This panel session will focus on improvements to the regulatory program for digital I&C with a primary focus on addressing common cause failure and defense-in-depth. Significant advancements have been achieved in guidance for practically addressing diversity and defense-in-depth against CCF in upgrades performed under 10 CFR 50.59 and NRC license requests. Industry leaders are reporting tangible success in tackling CCF and accomplishing plant digital modernization efforts. Panel session topics will include recent updates to NRC guidance; recent modernization accomplishments and issues associated with demonstrating sufficient protection against CCF in digital upgrades; and broader industry & NRC initiatives to facilitate digital modernization.
