1.1 This guide establishes the means and frequency of monitoring the neutron exposure of the LWR reactor pressure vessel (including the extended beltline) throughout its operating life.

1.2 The physics-dosimetry relationships determined from this guide may be used to estimate reactor pressure vessel damage through the application of Practice E693 and Guide E900, using fast neutron fluence (E > 1.0 MeV and E > 0.1 MeV), displacements per atom – dpa, or damage-function-correlated exposure parameters as independent exposure variables. Supporting the application of these standards are the E853, E944, E1018, and E1005 standards, identified in 2.1.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
