Title: Requirements in ANSI Standards vs. Facility

Technical Specifications

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.

Regulatory references: ANSI Standards, Technical

Specifications

Subject codes: 12.7

Applicability: Reactors
