Correspondence Related to NRC Bulletin 2003-02

On August 21, 2003, NRC issued NRC Bulletin 2003-02, "Leakage from Reactor Pressure Vessel Lower Head Penetrations and Reactor Coolant Pressure Boundary Integrity." There are two types of responses to the bulletin: initial, and 60 day. For licensees with a refueling outage prior to December 31, 2003, the initial response is due within 30 days of the bulletin, the other licensees have 90 days. This response requests information about the licensees lower head penetration inspection program. The 60 day response is a summary of the lower head penetration inspections and is due within 60 days of plant restart.

On November 5, 2003, the NRC issued Temporary Instruction 2515/152, Revision 1 , which revises the area on reporting requirements. On September 5, 2003, the NRC issued Temporary Instruction 2515/152 , "Reactor Pressure Vessel Lower Head Penetration Nozzles," (NRC Bulletin 2003-02)
