A set of screening and classification method is proposed in this paper to manage the Systems, Structures and Components (SSCs) of the Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) for the aging management. The method proposed and carried out in China Nuclear Power Plants (NPP) is based on the systematic aging evaluation method and the management method for the license renewal from International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), whose successful management methods are discussed in this paper. Considering the importance of the classification management of the SSCs, the classification method is investigated from the aspects of the safety, reliability and replacement of the SSCs with the Nuclear Power Plant operation experience feed-back. With the classification management method, the SSCs are managed economically and effectively for the Nuclear Power Plants in China. The method also makes great foundation for the aging management and residual life evaluation of the PWR in China.
