FinNuclear Training 2014:

QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN NUCLEAR PROJECTS

Date: November 28, 2014 (Friday)
Place: Technopolis Helsinki-Vantaa, Teknobulevardi 3-5 D, Vantaa, Finland


This seminar provides the up-to-date information on the nuclear specifics of quality management by going through the NSQ-100 standard(*). The day is dedicated for quality professionals of both current and potential suppliers and service providers working in the nuclear industry.

*NSQ-100 is a new standard based upon ISO 9001:2008 and two other major nuclear quality standards IAEA GS-R-3:2006 and ASME NQA-1-2008 (and addenda 2009). NSQ-100 standard is also complemented by a series of correspondence matrices, e.g. to GS-R-3 (2006), KTA 1401 (2013-11) and 10 CFR 50 Appendix B (US NRC). The standard family is maintained by the Nuclear Quality Standard Association (NQSA), which was jointly launched by Areva and Bureau Veritas in 2011.

Preliminary program includes:

  • Overview and in-depth presentation of NSQ-100 standard and guidelines
    • Nuclear specific requirements, differences from ISO 9001:2008
    • Correspondence matrix NSQ-100 vs IAEA GS-R-3 (2006)

    • Introduction to NQSA
