ASME NQA-1 (Nuclear Quality Assurance-1) is an industry consensus standard created and maintained by ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers). The latest edition was issued in December 2019, (NQA-1-2019). However, the most commonly used version is NQA-1-2008 with the NQA-1a-2009 addendum. This is the case because these are the versions endorsed by the NRC.
The NQA standard provides requirements that prescribe the extent of controls needed in specific areas of a nuclear quality program (an ASME NQA program).
This is a one-and-a-half-day course that addresses the requirements of ASME NQA-1, Subpart 2.14 for Commercial Grade Dedication. This course also addresses the EPRI guidance on Commercial Grade Dedication and is suitable for companies in the commercial nuclear industry and those companies doing business with the Department of Energy. This class is suitable for Engineering, Quality Assurance, and Procurement personnel.
