ASME NQA-1A-2009 pdf download.Addenda to ASME NQA-1–2008 Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications.
This Standard reflects industry experience and current understanding of the quality assurance requirements necessary to achieve safe, reliable, and efficient utiliza- tion of nuclear energy, and management and processing of radioactive materials. The Standard focuses on the achievement of results, emphasizes the role of the indi- vidual and line management in the achievement of qual- ity, and fosters the application of these requirements in a manner consistent with the relative importance of the item or activity. 100 PURPOSE This Part sets forth requirements for the establishment and execution of quality assurance programs during siting, design, construction, operation, and decommis- sioning of nuclear facilities. Nonmandatory guidance is provided in the Appendices in Part III. 200 APPLICABILITY The requirements of Part I apply to activities that could affect the quality of nuclear material applications, structures, systems, and components ofnuclearfacilities. Examples of nuclear facilities are facilities for power generation, spent fuel storage, waste management, fuel reprocessing, nuclear material processing, fuel fabrica- tion, and other related facilities. Activities include siting, designing, procuring, fabricating, constructing, han- dling, shipping, receiving, storing, cleaning, erecting, installing, inspecting, testing, operating, maintaining, repairing, refueling, modifying, and decommissioning. The application of this Part, or portions thereof, shall be invoked by written contracts, policies, procedures, specifications, or other appropriate documents. 300 RESPONSIBILITY The organization invoking this Part shall be responsi- ble for specifying which requirements, or portions thereof, apply, and appropriately relating them to spe- cific items and services. The organization implementing this Part, or portions thereof, shall be responsible for complying with the specific requirements to achieve quality results.
audit: a planned and documented activity performed to determine by investigation, examination, or evaluation of objective evidence the adequacy of and compliance withestablished procedures,instructions, drawings,and other applicable documents, and the effectiveness of implementation. An audit should not be confused with surveillance or inspection activities performed for the sole purpose of process control or product acceptance. audit, external: an audit of those portions of another organization’s quality assurance program not under the direct control or within the organizational structure of the auditing organization. audit, internal: an audit of those portions of an organi- zation’s quality assurance program retained under its direct control and within its organizational structure. Certificate of Conformance: a document signed or other- wise authenticated by an authorized individual certi- fying the degree to which items or services meet specified requirements. certification: the act of determining, verifying, and attesting in writing to the qualifications of personnel, processes, procedures, oritems inaccordance withspeci- fied requirements. characteristic: any property or attribute of an item, process, or service that is distinct, desirable, and measurable. commercial grade item: 1, 2 a structure, system, component, or part thereof that affects its safety function, that was not designed and manufactured as a basic component. Commercial grade items do not include items where the design and manufacturing process require in-process inspections and verifications to ensure that defects or failures to comply are identified and corrected (i.e., one or more critical characteristics of the item cannot be verified).
affecting quality. Types of record media may include paper, electronic (magnetic or optical), or specially pro- cessed media such as radiographs, photographs, nega- tives, and microforms. The term record, as used throughout the Standard, is to be interpreted as quality assurance record. quality standard: a code or standard that provides design inputs, acceptance criteria, or other criteria necessary to assure the quality of the designated item. receiving: taking delivery of an item at a designated location. repair: the process of restoring a nonconforming charac- teristic to a condition such that the capability of an item to function reliably and safely is unimpaired, even though that item still does not conform to the original requirement. rework: the process by which an item is made to conform to original requirements by completion or correction. right of access: the right of a Purchaser or designated representative to enter the premises of a Supplier for the purpose of inspection, surveillance, or quality assurance audit. safety function: the performance of an item or service necessary to achieve safe, reliable, and effective utiliza- tion of nuclear energy and nuclear material processing. service: the performance of activities such as design, fab- rication, inspection, nondestructive examination, repair, or installation.
