NRC Information Notice 2002-15:  Hydrogen Combustion Events in Foreign
BWR Piping dated April 12, 2002

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is issuing this information notice
to inform addressees about two recent hydrogen combustion events in
piping at foreign boiling water reactors (BWRs). These BWRs were not of
domestic (U.S.) manufacture; however, the affected systems where the
hydrogen combustions occurred are similar to those in some domestic BWRs.
 The events were publicly reported in the respective countries' news
media.  No injuries to personnel or radioactive releases to the
environment were reported.
