In recent years, numbers of SCC have occurred in core shrouds and primary loop recirculation piping made of low carbon stainless steels that had been recognized to be an SCC-resistant material. These incidents resulted in long-term shutdown of Japanese boiling water reactors and have drawn social as well as technical interests. This paper will provide an introductory review on (1) background of SCC observed in low carbon stainless steel components in BWRs, (2) characteristics of SCC in core shrouds and PLR piping, (3) structural integrity evaluation, (4) SCC mitigation techniques, (5) SCC mechanism and (6) research topics that should be covered regarding these issues.
