Subject: Issuance of Bulletin 2002-02

NRC Bulletin 2002-02: Reactor Pressure Vessel Head and Vessel Head
Penetration Nozzle Inspection Programs dated August 9, 2002

The NRC is issuing this bulletin to:

(1) Advise pressurized-water reactor (PWR) addressees that visual
    examinations, as a primary inspection method for the reactor pressure
    vessel (RPV) head and vessel head penetration (VHP) nozzles, may need
    to be supplemented with additional measures (e.g., volumetric and
   surface examinations) to demonstrate compliance with applicable
  regulations.

(2) Advise PWR addressees that inspection methods and frequencies to
    demonstrate compliance with applicable regulations should be
    demonstrated to be reliable and effective.

(3) Request information from all PWR addressees concerning their RPV
    head and VHP nozzle inspection programs to ensure compliance with
    applicable regulatory requirements.

(4) Require all PWR addressees to provide written responses to this
    bulletin related to their inspection program plans.
