Over deze norm
NPR-IEC/TR 63084 provides an assessment framework and activities for efficient and transparent qualification of I&C platforms for use in nuclear applications important to safety, according to nuclear standards and state of the art. The assessment aims at a prequalification of I&C platforms outside the framework of a specific plant design. Qualification is assumed to be pre-requisite for allowing the particular I&C platform to be used for implementation of the safety classified I&C system. It is to enable parties implementing particular plant specific I&C systems to concentrate on application functions, while for basic system functions to rely on platform qualification. The I&C platform qualification is based on evaluation of the hardware and software functions provided by the platform ensuring safe and cost-effective life-cycle support of I&C systems. That would include tools for software engineering and software development (software module libraries), code generation, validation, maintenance, etc. Basic means of equipment qualification, as prescribed by the IEC/IEEE 60780-323, are through analysis, type testing and documented operational experience. Other documents applicable for qualification for nuclear use include IEC 61513, IEC 60880, IEC 62138, IEC 62566, IEC 62671 and IEC 61226. The features of the I&C platform to be qualified will be identified in requirements on the I&C platform. The requirements can vary, but in essence are based on suppliers' claims on the product scope and functionality. Those claims are normally given in platform documentation such as system descriptions and supplier's requirements for design, implementation, verification & validation. They are all based on the appropriate IEC SC 45A standards and national regulations.
