An overview of the Spanish reactor pressure vessel surveillance programs is presented. This overview includes a description of the surveillance capsules that have been analyzed in the operating reactors to date. Several important considerations regarding the long-term operation of the Spanish reactors are discussed, including the use of reconstituted Charpy specimens and the implementation of ex-vessel dosimetry in the Spanish reactors.
