Implementation of Risk Managed Technical Specification (RMTS) Initiative 4b, Risk-Informed Completion Times, for the two 3800 MW pressurized water reactors operated at the South Texas Project is described. Implementation issues encountered are presented and their resolutions described. The STP approach using a software application RICTCal to calculate risk informed completion times (RICTs) on the existing enterprise database to calculate risk informed completion times (RICTs) is described. Advantages, disadvantages, and lessons learned of the RMTS implementation are discussed. The methodology used to calculate completion times and maintain the database is described and a brief description of the developed documentation (procedures and guidance documents) for RMTS implementation at STP is given.
