Requirements in ANSI Standards vs. Facility Technical Specifications
Title: Requirements in ANSI Standards vs. Facility
See the memorandum from T. M. Novak to S. E. Bryan dated
April 21, 1981. When there are conflicts between
requirements in Technical Specifications and "requirements"
in ANSI Standards, the requirements contained in the
Technical Specifications override those in the ANSI
Standards. But, requirements in ANSI Standards should be
complied with when they supplement and are not in conflict
with similar requirements in Technical Specifications.
