Approvals include ISO 17025 (A2LA), GE S-400 and passing numerous NQA-1 audits.
The ASME NQA-1 Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications is internationally recognized.
Although the ASME NQA-1 standard sets forth the requirements for establishing and executing a nuclear quality assurance program, being a performance-based standard (as opposed to a highly prescriptive design standard) the application and flow down of QA requirements could possibly be misunderstood or misapplied.
In an effort to promote the proper application of the NQA-1 requirements, ASME worked with industry leaders in the field of quality assurance, members from the NQA Standards Committee and its Subcommittees, and the Committee on Nuclear Certification, to develop the NQA-1 Certification Program.
It will make an accurate assessment of a supplier's capability in implementing its QA program in compliance with the NQA-1 standard, and will issue a certificate affirming that the company has been found in compliance.
Use the PIPE-FLO Nuclear package to integrate the accompanying Commercial Grade Dedication into your NQA-1 program to support swift enterprise implementation of the modeling software.
These Live demonstrations are presented by one of our expert engineers, capable of answering your PIPE-FLO Nuclear questions, and covering topics such as How the program looks and feels, simulating safety related and non-safety related systems, types of systems, integration into an NQA-1 program, and Engineered Software's Quality Assurance Program.
But ASME also has nuclear standards for: Operations and Maintenance (OM), Qualification of Mechanical Equipment (QME), Nuclear Quality Assurance Requirements (NQA-1), Probabilistic Risk Assessment (RA-S, a joint ASME-ANS Standard), Nuclear Air Treatment (N509, N510, AG-1), and Rules for Construction of Cranes (NOG-1, NUM-1).
The audit also verified compliance with applicable portions of NCA-3800, NQA-1 2008/09 Addenda, NQA-1 1994, 10CFR50 Appendix B, 10CFR21, and N45.2 as related to performing chemical analysis, mechanical testing, metallurgical testing, nondestructive testing, dimensional inspection, calibration, specimen machining and sample preparation.
Certified Material Test Reports in accordance with ASME Section III NCA-3800, 10CFR50 Appendix B or NQA-1 are provided with each order.
In addition, the standard should be consistent with applicable sections of ASME StandaM NQA-1 (3) ("Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications (QA)").
