Abstract: The guideline intends to provide a practical approach and to recommend the methods to be used in selection/prioritization of components, systems and structures (SSC) sensitive to ageing and important from risk point of view in operating nuclear power plants. The approach intends to ensure that the selection process will be carried out and documented in a uniform and consistent manner. The methods suitable for selection are briefly presented, and their advantages and disadvantages are specified. A list of generic ageing mechanisms, the factors favorable for their occurrence and some sensitive materials are provided in appendices. In the appendices are presented also the specific approaches and criteria used for SSC prioritization and selection in case studies performed in the frame of Ageing PSA task 3 activities. The guideline was developed in the frame of EC JRC Ageing PSA Network (APSA) activities.
