Abstract: This document is the outcome of one of the activities of ENIQ¿s Task Group on Risk (TGR) concerning risk informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI). ENIQ, the European Network for Inspection and Qualification, was set up in 1992 in recognition of the importance of the issue of qualification of NDE inspection procedures used in in-service inspection programmes for nuclear power plants. Supported by European nuclear utilities and managed by the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Petten, the Netherlands, ENIQ was intended to be a network in which the available resources and expertise could be managed at European level. It was also recognised that harmonisation in the field of codes and standards for inspection qualification would furnish major advantages for all parties involved, with the ultimate goal of increasing the safety of European nuclear power plants. More information on the ENIQ network and its activities can be found at http://safelife.jrc.nl/eniq/. ENIQ¿s work is done by two sub-groups: the Task Group on Qualification (TGQ) focuses on the qualification of in-service inspection (ISI) systems, while Task Group on Risk (TGR) focuses on risk-informed in-service inspection (RI-ISI) issues. The TGR has published the European Framework Document for Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection, and is producing more detailed recommended practices and discussion documents on several RI-ISI-specific issues. This document is intended to act as a basis for discussion on how to apply Risk-Informed In-Service Inspection (RI-ISI) concepts to the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV).
