Nuclear QA Codes & Standards (NQA-1) Training
After years of inactivity, it’s now an exciting time in the nuclear industry! Many companies are considering developing or reinstating a nuclear QA program. This requires personnel to become familiar with NRC and/or DOE regulations, standards (including NQA-1), and understand what is expected and how to meet nuclear requirements. The problem recognized is providing useful and timely training to QA personnel, project managers, inspection and test personnel, and others who will need to understand or implement the nuclear QA requirements. The training required is fairly broad-based, but must also be detailed, efficient, and interesting. In response to the need for a performance-based orientation to nuclear QA, J-E-T-S developed this one-day Nuclear QA Codes & Standards Orientation.
Nuclear QA Codes & Standards Orientation is a fast-paced one day program, providing the knowledge and skills needed to understand, interpret, and apply the QA requirements of 10CFR50 Appendix B, 10CFR21, 10CFR830.120, and NQA-1 within the organization. This program is often "customized" to fit client or contract-specific needs, such as a special focus on DOE, NRC, or nuclear supplier requirements. Through the use of workshops, discussion, and actual hands-on examples, the following topics are covered:
· Describe and discuss background & intent of Nuclear QA Standards
o History and development of CFRs and supporting standards
o Intent and focus of requirements and their implementation
o Areas of common misunderstanding with lessons from regulators & customers
· Discuss responsibilities/accountability for regulation & standard compliance
· Basic comparison of different standards, including 10CFR50 Appendix B, 10CFR21, NQA-1, ISO-9001, and 10CFR830.120 with interfaces
o Interface of 10CFR50 Appendix B to different NQA-1 versions
o Lessons learned and transition from ISO-9001 to nuclear
· Be able to interpret; apply nuclear QA requirements in realistic situations
o Exercises to reinforce understanding of requirements
o Discussion of “finer points” of compliance and understanding
