Subject:  NRC Enforcement Positions for ASME Codes

Dear George:  On January 11.2007, the NRC presented their draft positions as follows:

 

1.  All Nonmandatory Appendices are considered approved for use for the currently endorsed ASME Code Editions and Addenda of Section III (Division I), Section XI (Division I) and the OM Code as listed in 10 CFR 55a.

 

2.  All references in these Codes to supporting Codes such as Section II, Section V and Section IX are implicitly approved for use, up to the latest published versions available.

 

3.  The current endorsement of ASME Section III (Division I) Subsections NE for containments, NF for supports and NG for core support structures are implicitly approved for use, but are not mandatory.

 

4.  Code Cases published for Sections II, V and IX are also implicitly approved.

 

The NRC is expected to publish their final positions soon, but the publication media is unknown at this time.
