Application

This Standard applies to the containment system of existing and new water-cooled nuclear power plants.

Notes:

“Existing nuclear power plants” refers to those licensed for initial operation prior to 2011.

The requirements for new builds and existing plants might differ. Where requirements differ for new builds and existing plants, the difference is explicitly stated.

For supplementary information on multi-unit CANDU NPC systems, refer to Annex C.

Companion document

This Standard was written as a companion document to CSA N290.0, which outlines general requirements for safety systems.

This Standard, with its companion document, specifies requirements for the design, qualification, installation, operation, maintenance, inspection, and documentation of a containment system.

Requirement interpretation

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.1  General

This Document is intended to provide recommended best practices for the application of HOF in order to support human and organizational performance, learning, and continual improvement.

The overarching goal of this Document is to contribute towards optimizing pipeline performance, which includes the prevention of harm to people, property, and the environment caused by a major hazard accident (e.g., unintended product release, spill, explosion, fire).

Applying HOF principles to occupational health and safety management (i.e., slips, trips and falls, musculoskeletal injuries etc.) may have a positive effect, but such an application is not the focus of this document.

1.2  Applicability

This Document is intended to guide pipeline operating companies to:

a)    Understand and apply HOF best practices across all aspects of the pipeline life cycle utilizing operating company (safety and loss) management system(s), and related protection programs (i.e., safety, security, integrity, emergency management, damage prevention, and environmental protection);

b)    Recognize and understand performance variability in systems and how PIFs affect human actions and decisions in context; and

c)    Apply HOF principles and best practices before, during and after an activity or event to promote error avoidance, mitigation and continual learning.

This Document is not intended to prescribe specific tools or methods to be used by an operating company. Instead, the principles and practices described are intended to complement existing tools and methods within the context of the company's management system (including policies, processes, and procedures) and pipeline protection programs.

1.3  Terminology

In this Document, “should” is used to express best practices and recommendations for the user and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Document.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate explanatory or informative material from the substantive text.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

A bibliography and additional supplemental reading that may be helpful can be found in  Annex C.

1.1 Inclusions

This Standard details the safety and performance requirements for temperature compensation control used to prevent compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensing systems from exceeding a safe fill level of vehicle fuel storage container(s). This Standard contains safety performance guidelines for compressed natural gas fueling dispenser temperature compensation systems. It applies to newly manufactured dispensing systems and the field evaluation of existing dispensing systems designed primarily to allow for full fill and to avoid over-pressurization of vehicle fuel storage containers under operating temperature conditions as specified in this Standard.

This Standard applies to CNG fueling of vehicle containers with service pressures of P30 [20 700 kPa (3,000 psi)], P30HD [20 700 kPa (3,000 psi)], P36 [24 800 kPa (3,600 psi)], and P36HD [24 800 kPa (3,600 psi)]. P30HD and P36HD are designations used in accordance with CSA/ANSI NGV 1, and throughout the document the use of P30 and P36 are also applicable to P30HD and P36HD, respectively (see Annex A regarding applicable vehicle service pressures).

This Standard is applicable to the dispensing of only natural gas that meets quality specifications contained in ASTM D8080.

1.2 Units of Measure

All dimensions used in this Standard are in metric units [International System of Units (SI)], unless otherwise specified. If a value for a measurement, as given in this Standard, is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the specification.

If a value for a measurement and a corresponding value in other units are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, either the first stated unit, or both, are to be provided.

1.3 Pressure References

All references to pressure throughout this document are to be considered gauge pressures unless otherwise specified.

1.4

The requirements of this Standard are not intended to constrain innovation. When considering fuel compositions, controls, materials, designs, or constructions not specifically dealt with in this Standard, these alternatives are to be evaluated as to their ability to yield levels of safety and performance equivalent to or better than those prescribed by this Standard.

1.5

In the case of conflict between this Standard and Federal, Provincial, State, or Local requirements, the governmental requirements take precedence.

1.6 Terminology

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

This part of IEC 62600 specifies the requirements of the technology qualification process for marine renewable technologies. Technology Qualification is a process of providing evidence and arguments to support claims that the technology under assessment will function reliably in a target operating environment within specific limits and with an acceptable level of confidence. The Technology Qualification process is also assumed in 
IEC TS 62600-2: 2019. The objective of this document is to provide the necessary practices and technical requirements, regarding technology qualification methodology, to support the needs of the IECRE certification 
process for marine renewables energy systems. Technology Qualification may be performed at the beginning of the certification process to identify the uncertainties, novelties, and modes of failure, mechanisms of failure, 
risks and risk control measures. In addition, Technology Qualification will identify the standards that are applicable, to what extent and what adaptation to the technology is required to address the risks. The Technology Qualification Plan is the deliverable arising from this process and it will provide all necessary actions to achieve certification.
