Abstract

The European Network on Inspection Qualification (ENIQ) has started a specific Task Group (TG4) with the main objective of developing a methodology appropriate to the European Plant Operators needs using the concept of risk and harmonising the different EU initiatives on this subject. This methodology should provide a framework for the European Plant Operators to develop a risk informed management strategy to optimise the plant inspection.

The present report represents a first attempt in this direction and should be considered as a discussion document that projects the general opinion of ENIQ TG4 on the issue of Risk Informed In-Service Inspection, and which covers all the main elements of the risk based decision making process. The integration of the above elements to form a single framework that encompasses plant inspection, maintenance and instrumentation to insure a cost efficient process of optimising the plant risk, will be the objective for a further document.
