Qualification/Dedication Testing and Qualification/Dedication Testing Management
UnequaledSolid Engineering and Commended Qualification/Dedication File Preparation.
Integrity Solution Group's senior staff was a key element in assisting the Yankee Rowe Plant to become the first US Nuclear Plant to pass an NRC audit to the requirements of the EQ rule (10CFR50.49) without a single open item. We are especially proud of this achievement as much of the Yankee equipment was decades old without today's level of documentation. Yankee was the oldest operating nuclear power plant in the United States (and longest operating light water reactor nuclear power plant in the world until its recent retirement). Likewise, every complete EQ or CGI Dedication file we prepared or every file prepared by others when redone by Integrity Solution Group staff was fully acceptable (or commended) under NRC review.
No other provider of EQ services or EQ File Preparation/Program management has equaled the success of Integrity Solution Group senior staff led efforts which have also included under construction nuclear plants. Industry reports on the success of this staff and management are typified by the following quotation from the American Nuclear Society News, from April 1983:
Only one or two plants, at most, were able to meet the same intensive NUREG 0588 requirements which these plants met first without any NRC determination of deficiencies during their first company audit. No other team has had combined success on IEB 7901B, NUREG 0588 Category 1 and NUREG 0588 Category 2 plants as has the senior Integrity Solution Group staff. The approaches taken, in fact formed the foundation of the most successful series of EQ training programs given to industry provided in conjunction with the American Society For Quality Control entitled, "Successful and Proven Methods to Qualify and Dedicate Equipment and Parts for Nuclear Safety Related Service". The accompanying text book, "Equipment Adequacy Demonstration for Nuclear Power and Related Facilities" is used as reference text by many nuclear utilities, the NRC, the international nuclear community, NSSS vendors and others.
The following is a sampling of typical commendations that Integrity Solution Group staff received from engineering, quality, management, operations and related personnel in the nuclear industry (also see other commendations):
