Maintenance effectiveness is important for the safety and power production of Nuclear Power Plants (NPP). U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Maintenance Rule (10CFR50.65, MR) became effective in 1996, and it is mandatory for all the US plants to use Maintenance Rule in their daily maintenance activities. With the development and wide usage of Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) technique in China, China regulator and utilities are trying to adopt MR in maintenance activities. Brief study on application of MR in some VVER-typed China nuclear plant is carried out and some main results are shown. All the application process and results will be useful for later official application of MR in China.
