December 10, 2021, 12:00PMANS News

The following newly published standard is available for purchase in the ANS Store:

ANSI/ANS-3.14-2021, Process for Infrastructure Aging Management and Life Extension of Nonreactor Nuclear Facilities (new standard)

Scope: This standard addresses requirements for systematically evaluating structures, systems, and components (SSCs) for extending the life of nonreactor nuclear facilities. It provides a systematic process to determine the scope of the aging management/life extension program in terms of SSCs. For those SSCs, a process for the evaluation of remaining lifetime and determining the need for additional analysis, repairs, inspections, surveillance, testing, and spare part obsolescence will be developed.
