This chapter addresses the requirements of IWA-4000 for repair/replacement (R/R) activities for nuclear power plant items. It examines the background of these R/R activities, notes some of the changes in R/R activity requirements since the original 1970 Edition, and reviews in detail the requirements in IWA-4000 in the 2015 Edition of Section XI of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. The discussion of the scope and applicability of Section XI R/R activities is informative to both new and longtime users. The chapter discusses the alternative requirements for small items, which is described in IWA-4131.1 and covers the requirements...
