This paper discusses recent issues related to inservice examination and testing of dynamic restraints (snubbers) at U.S. nuclear power plants. These issues were identified during the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff review of snubber examination and testing programs, relief requests, and applicable operating experience. This discussion includes information that could have generic applicability in the implementation of effective snubber programs at U.S. nuclear power plants.
