Availability Notice


The Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL) report contains the staff's generic evaluation of the existing plant programs and documents the technical basis for determining where existing programs are adequate without modification and where existing programs should be augmented for the extended period of operation. The evaluation results documented in the GALL report indicate that many of the existing programs are adequate to manage the aging effects for particular structures or components for license renewal without change. The GALL report also contains recommendations on specific areas for which existing programs should be augmented for license renewal. An applicant may reference the GALL report in a license renewal application to demonstrate that the programs at the applicant's facility correspond to those reviewed and approved in the GALL report and that no further staff review is required. The focus of the staff review is on the augmented existing programs for license renewal. The incorporation of the GALL report information into the NUREG-1800, "Standard Review Plan for Review of License Renewal Applications for Nuclear Power Plants," as directed by the Commission, should improve the efficiency of the license renewal process.
