Requirements in ANSI Standards vs. Facility Technical Specifications

HPPOS-109 PDR-9111210257

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
