3.1.2 Existing Facilities and Activities
The contractor should have identified the design requirements for safety systems, structures, and components (SSCs) for existing, hazard category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities during the development of the documented safety analysis (DSA) to meet 10 CFR Part 830, Subpart B. For facilities that lack thorough documentation of the design basis, or for SSCs other than safety SSCs, the requirements for previously installed SSCs may not be documented or available. In these cases, it may not make sense from a cost versus benefit perspective to immediately reconstruct the design requirements.
Replaced/Superseded by document(s)
The purpose of this standard is to define the objectives of a configuration management process for DOE nuclear facilities (including activities and operations), and to provide detailed examples and supplementary guidance on methods of achieving those objectives. Configuration management is a disciplined process that involves both management and technical direction to establish and document the design requirements and the physical configuration of the nuclear facility and to ensure that they remain consistent with each other and the documentation.
