This procedure describes the responsibilities and steps necessary to perform walkdowns
for the purpose of establishing the as-found physical configuration of the facility, and
identifying any discrepancies with the associated facility documentation.
The objectives of the configuration management walkdowns are to:
Establish the as-found physical configuration of the facility
Identify any discrepancies between the as-found configuration and
associated facility documentation
This document applies to all formal efforts by facility and contractor personnel to
reconstruct missing data or field-verify existing equipment database information through
walkdowns on mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation and control (I&C) systems.
This will be accomplished by performing the walkdowns on a system-by-system basis to
identify the as-found physical configuration and to obtain missing nameplate data for
inclusion into the configuration management equipment database.
The following are examples of relevant types of documents that should be identified and
referenced In support of this walkdown effort:
Drawings (e.g., P&IDs, schematics, location drawings, vendor drawings,
Operations Procedures (e.g., system startup, system operations, etc.)
Quality Assurance (QA) Procedures (e.g., non-conformance items, field
deviation notices, drawing change notices, independent verification, etc.)
Equipment Database Procedures
Maintenance Procedures (e.g., work request, scaffold erection, etc.)
Security and Safeguard Procedures
Radiation Protection Procedures (if applicable)
Special Requirements covering environmental qualification, fire
Documented Safety Analysis
Walkdown: A visual inspection of facility SSCs to identify the as-found physical
configuration and any discrepancies with currently approved facility documentation.
