Abstract: The European Framework Document for Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection [1] is intended to provide general guidelines to utilities for both developing RI-ISI approaches and for using or adapting already established approaches to the European nuclear environment taking into account utility-specific characteristics and national regulatory requirements. The Framework Document recommends the use of an expert panel to review the selection of safety-significant sites before the inspection programme is finalised. However, more detailed guidance regarding the responsibilities, composition and working procedures of an expert panel is not provided. This ENIQ recommended practice is meant to assist a user involved in a RI-ISI application on how to form, prepare and facilitate an expert panel whose final goal is making decisions concerning the inclusion or exclusion of sites from the risk-informed inspection programme. A recommended practice is a document produced by ENIQ to support the higher level Framework Document. Users are free to use at national level these recommended practices, as they see fit. The main objectives of this recommended practice are to give guidance on: Composition of the expert panel; Responsibilities of the expert panel; Planning and preparation of the expert panel; Conduction of the expert panel; Documentation of the expert panel.
