ATTACHMENT 65001.15INSPECTION OF ITAAC-RELATED INSTALLATION OFFIRE PROTECTION EQUIPMENTPROGRAM APPLICABILITY: 250365001.15-01INSPECTION OBJECTIVES01.01To determine whether fire protection equipment is being installed in accordancewith design specifications and approved procedures.01.02To evaluate the performance of ITAAC-related fire protection equipmentinstallation, testing, documentation, and verification activities.01.03To determine whether fire protection equipment configuration and recordsreflect work accomplishment consistent with the design specifications and approvedprocedures.01.04To evaluate the adequacy of the implementation of the specific qualityassurance program requirements related to fire protection equipment installationactivities and records control and assure that any identified problems are entered intothe corrective action process.65001.15-02INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDANCEGeneral Guidance: The commitments for Fire Protection Equipment (FPE) for 10 CFRpart 52 licensees will be found in the Design Control Documents (DCD) submitted tothe NRC to support each power plant design certification. In the DCD, Tier 1 materialcontains a brief description of the fire protection equipment and the Inspections, Tests,Analyses, and Acceptance Criteria (ITAAC) that the fire protection equipment mustmeet. Tier 2 material contains a more detailed description of the design basis of the fireprotection equipment. In preparation for this inspection the inspector should obtain acopy of the final NRC approved version of the DCD and review the Tier 1 and 2 materialfor fire protection equipment to gain an understanding of the design basis,configuration, operation, and expected performance of the fire protection equipment.Fire protection requirements in the DCD are located not only in sections labeled assuch but in sections on electrical distribution, sections on buildings or structures, andpotentially elsewhere. During inspection preparation the inspector shall perform anelectronic search of the DCD to attempt to locate all the fire protection ITAACrequirements.
