Inspection agency requirements

The Nuclear AMRC and Manufacturing Advisory Service present a workshop for companies which are interested in entering the supply chain for nuclear new-build, but which have limited experience in nuclear manufacturing. The half-day workshop, delivered by Parsons Brinckerhoff, introduces the quality demands of nuclear manufacturing, and describe the roles and responsibilities of manufacturers.

The workshop focuses on what Inspection Agencies look for when assessing a nuclear manufacturer. Independent third-party inspectors are typically commissioned by the utilities buying new nuclear plant, to ensure that their suppliers conform to industry specifications. The inspectors are charged with assessing suppliers against contractual requirements and industry standards for the production of equipment for new nuclear power plant. Attendance is free to representatives of interested UK manufacturing companies, but places are limited.

Following a successful workshop in December, further events will be held around the UK in 2012. For more information, download the flyer or contact Nuclear AMRC head of quality Paul Bunting.
