Subject: Publication of regulatory document RD/GD-210, Maintenance Programs for Nuclear Power Plants
The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has published regulatory document RD/GD-210, Maintenance Programs for Nuclear Power Plants .
This document presents the CNSC’s requirements with regard to maintenance programs for nuclear power plants (NPPs). An NPP maintenance program consists of policies, processes and procedures that provide direction for maintaining structures, systems or components (SSCs) of the plant. This document also provides information and guidance on how the requirements may be met.
The scope of the maintenance program covers all SSCs within the bounds of the nuclear power plant. The maintenance efforts applied to each SSC are understood to be commensurate with its importance to safety.
The requirements contained in RD/GD-210, Maintenance Programs for Nuclear Power Plants were originally published in 2007, as regulatory standard S-210, Maintenance Programs for Nuclear Power Plants. RD/GD-210 replaces S-210.
A paper copy of the document in either official language can be requested from:
