The paper reviews the existing aging management programs (AMPs) for the reactor coolant system (RCS) components in pressurized water reactors (PWRs), including the reactor pressure vessel and internals, the reactor coolant system and connected lines, pressurizer, reactor coolant pumps, valves, and steam generators. These programs have been evaluated in the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) report Generic Aging Lessons Learned (GALL), NUREG-1801, for their use in the license renewal process. These AMPs include both generic and plant-specific programs. The generic AMPs are acceptable for managing aging effects during an extended period of operation and do not require further evaluation; the plant-specific AMPs require further evaluation. The use of the GALL report should facilitate both preparation of a license renewal application and timely and uniform review by the NRC staff.
