Our current certification can be found here. Download NRC Letter here. In Option B, the OEM manufactures commercial parts that are readily available outside of the nuclear industry and the commercial parts go through a final acceptance process when they are ordered as a nuclear safety related part.

Commercial Grade Dedication

Our shops are currently both ISO Our process is a collaboration of the Engineering, Quality eepri Project departments, who work together to determine the need for a replacement item and then to generate and complete the dedication package including Technical Evaluation, Sampling Plan, Critical Characteristic Verification Record and Certificate of Conformance. On-site Training for the Nuclear Power Industry On-site training can provide software project teams with the tools and techniques they need to be more productive and to produce high quality software that meets NRC Reg Guides and EPRI Guidelines in the most cost-effective manner.

Commercial Grade Dedication CGD can be a tricky area to discuss, and with that, the answer to this is yes and no. Where can I find regulations for commercial grade dedication?

Commercial grade dedication is called into existence by 10CFR21both in the definitions and section EARN the respect and loyalty np-5625 our customers through exceptional service and value. The intended audience for nuclear power industry training includes: You can always perform full CGD of the items, but this guidance allows the OEM to perform an acceptance process that is appropriate based on the advantages that the OEM has in regards to controlling the drawings and commercial process and receiving additional feedback from commercial uses of the items.

Medium Voltage up to 7 KVform wound, outside containment Low Voltage up to Vrandom wound, inside containment, intermittent duty MOV Motors Low Voltage up to Vrandom wound, inside containment, continuous duty All three qualification reports are available for review by the utility. Companies developing software-based equipment intended for use in safety-related applications within nuclear power plants Companies developing commercial grade items and digital systems that are going through the dedication process Quality Assurance organizations—within the epro or part of a third party dedicator—who are charged with oversight of software development activities Organizations who perform independent verification and validation functions On-site training is np-562 to help your staff understand what is required to comply with NRC Reg Guides, IEEE Standards and EPRI Technical Reports, such as: The process is complete when all critical characteristics are verified and the item is designated for use as n;-5652 basic component.

Customers who require notification of changes to the manual can obtained a Controlled copy by contacting EMC QA department.

A copy of our ISO As a side note, if a quality program follows NQA-1, the section for Basic Requirement 7 includes requirements for Commercial Grade Dedication which differ based on the edition followed. EMC maintains a dedicated, trained and qualified team of Quality Assurance and Quality Control personnel who are completely independent of production pressures and answer only to the President and Owner.


If your company manufactures commercial parts and sells the same parts to the nuclear industry as safety related parts, do those parts have to go through Commercial Grade Dedication?

I have also written a book on Software Verification and Validation which is used as a text in several undergraduate software engineering curricula as well as in many of my training courses. The insulation systems qualified are: On-site Courses Click on the course for an overview and syllabus: It can be downloaded from the link below: Our experienced team works closely with our local NAVY contractors to complete work on time and to meet all purchase order and related standard item, technical manual, specification and drawing requirements.

The insulation systems qualified are:. EPRI NP has been revised to make it easier to follow for the performance of commercial grade dedication.

EMC – Safety-related, Quality Assurance, NUPIC, ISO

ISO Certified quality program since The first question received is: This is a great question because it can be very difficult to find requirements for commercial grade dedication. As far as the dedication process goes, the requirements for it are somewhat loose.

UL Certified since
