To guarantee the effective communications under earthquake and enhance the utility of communication system in nuclear power plants, it is proposed to do seismic qualification test for all telecommunication system in nuclear power plant. In this paper, a principle include object, scope method and setup of the qualification is provided. It is found that if telecommunication equipments pass such qualification test, the availability of communication system and the safe operation of nuclear power plant can be guaranteed when earthquake occur.
