From the Paper:

"Laws concerning maintenance have changed since many power plants went into operation. "The lawyers and engineers who wrote the law thought they could secure environmental process by imposing tougher emission standards on new power plants (and certain other emission sources) than on existing ones" (Gruenspecht and Stavins 2002). The theory concerning emissions was based on the idea that emissions would be eliminated and replaced by newer ones. This approach is costly as well as environmentally counterproductive. Many companies try to keep the old power plants going instead of building newer ones because they did not want to invest in new and cleaner power technologies or to repair the old technology. Decommissioning a power plant is the cessation of operations until it is finally completely removed. The purpose for decommissioning is to provide the health and safety of the public and the environment. Safety is an important issue in this process. Maintenance often must be done before the decommissioning of a project. Decommissioning requires all materials with radioactivity levels should be removed and the site is then released without furthur surveillance (NEA 1987). The study of nuclear power plants and what the NRC requires is an interesting topic because most of the general population lack understanding about how the nuclear power plants work or what are the regulations required for safety. Maintenance is an important part of this. Clear written maintenance orders are necessary for this process and those of new power plants.
"Maintenance orders are usually written orders. Often repair services are included in a year or more warranty in regards to equipment. Maintenance orders will be written for the repairs needed. Often it is cheaper to replace items or to order maintenance than to replace various items. Maintenance is especially vital when it comes to power plants. The problem often arises when the maintenance order is not written clearly."
