Owners' Groups

Babcock & Wilcox -- The Babcock & Wilcox Owners Group, representing five operating B&W plants, has formulated a generic license renewal program. The B&W Owners Group has submitted generic license renewal reports on the reactor coolant system piping, the pressurizer, the reactor pressure vessel, and reactor vessel internals.

Westinghouse -- The Westinghouse Owners Group also has programs for license renewal and has submitted technical reports on the aging management activities for the reactor coolant system supports, the pressurizer, the Class I piping, the containment structure, and the reactor vessel internals.

General Electric -- The Boiling Water Reactor Owners Group submitted a generic technical report on the containment structure and is currently concentrating their efforts on reports related to the vessel internals program.

Industry Activities

Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) -- Industry representatives also participate in working groups and technical committees, coordinated by the Nuclear Energy Institute, to address generic technical and process issues, and to develop additional guidance related to scoping and aging management programs. The NRC has established a formal feedback process by which the resolution of the generic renewal issues and lessons learned during the review of the initial renewal applications is documented and included in revisions to the implementation guidance. These activities are expected to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of future license renewal reviews.
