Nuclear Quality Assurance and Surveillance
NAC International’s lead auditors support and train emergent Nuclear Safety-related Quality Assurance suppliers, and established suppliers expanding their offerings.

Program and Procedure Development

NAC experts are available to assist customers with developing a nuclear QA program that satisfies 10 CFR 50 Appendix B requirements and complies with U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)-endorsed programs such as ANSI N45.2 and associated daughter standards, or ASME NQA-1.

NAC will also help identify and address gaps between commercial QA programs (e.g., ISO 9001) and safety-related QA programs. Our personnel will develop or review implementing procedures to ensure that QA program elements are appropriately satisfied. NAC is available to perform all necessary compliance reviews and audits.
