Appendix B Calibrations
What are Appendix B Calibrations?
A prerequisite of an Approved Nuclear Supplier is is maintaining a documented quality program that is successfully audited and approved by NUPIC and NIAC, to validate the quality program satisfies the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations 10 CFR 50; Appendix B, 10 CFR 21, NQA-1 and ANSI N45.2. The scope of our Appendix B program covers every type of measuring and test equipment used in a nuclear power station.
Why are Appendix B Calibrations important?
Nuclear plants and fuel reprocessing plants contain materials that could result in risk public health and safety if mishandled. There is infrastructure in place to mitigate the consequences of accidents that could occur, and when it comes to suppliers a comprehensive Appendix B program is required to mitigate these risks.
For more than a century, we have continuously supported Exelon, its subsidiaries, and the power industry with a leading Appendix B program. Our close relationship with Exelon and other major nuclear suppliers has enabled us to build a robust quality program that surpasses the requirements of many other industries. It also aids in streamlining our relationship with any organization in the nuclear power industry and comprises all the planned and systematic actions necessary to provide quality assurance.
