Technical Independent Project Review (TIPR)


An independent project review conducted at or near the completion of preliminary design, and is required prior to CD-2 approval, for Hazard Category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities. At a minimum, the focus of this review is to determine that the safety documentation is sufficiently conservative and bounding to be relied upon for the next phase of the project.

An independent project review conducted prior to obtaining CD-2 for Hazard Category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities. At a minimum, the focus of this review is to determine that the safety documentation is sufficiently conservative and bounding to be relied upon for the next phase of the project.

A form of an independent project review usually conducted prior to obtaining Critical Decision-1, Alternative Selection and Cost Range, for high risk, high hazard, and Hazard Category 1, 2, and 3 nuclear facilities. As a minimum, the focus of this review is to determine that the safety documentation is sufficiently conservative and bounding to be relied upon for the next phase of the project. TIPR’s can also be conducted any time during the project life-cycle when there is a need to focus on various project technical issues such as safety, technology maturity, or others. A TIPR could include TRA’s for projects which include identified critical technology elements in the project scope.
