[en] The Korea Electric Power Industry Code (KEPIC) certification program is a system for qualifying the organization in accordance with KEPIC requirements so as to achieve the safety and reliability goals of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs). The organizations certified by KEA can perform their appropriate code activities for nuclear safety-related items. KEA is finding its new roles for contributing to safety and reliability of NPPs in operation. It is one of those activities that KEPIC experts are studying a new certification program for repair and replacement organization of NPPs, which has been being operated by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (NBBI) in USA, but isn’t adopted by Korean nuclear industries. The kick-off meeting of project committee was held on December, 2017 and established the detailed promotion plan.
[en] A study has been made of the availability of human resources and R and D facilities in Science and Technology of the Accelerators - The National Nuclear Power Agency (BATAN-PSTA). This study aims to find out the availability of human resources and facilities existing in the PSTA surveillance results based on data from the National Commission on Accreditation Institution of research and development (KNAPPP). PSTA has implemented management systems R & D institution since the year 2003 up to now according the guidelines of KNAPPP 02: 2007 and reaccreditation have been doing has been updated is valid from May 11, 2017 until 10 may 2020. To start the year 2018 refers to latest Guidelines KNAPPP 02:2017. PSTA has also been accredited by the management system of laboratory/laboratory test of KAN, quality management system certification, certification of management system of safety and occupational health (K3), Environmental management system certification certification of environmental management systems and the latest Security management system certification on July 13, 2018 corresponding SB 009-BATAN: 2010. The study was done by studying the data results of the surveillance KNAPPP on 8-9 May 2018 related human resources and availability of facilities research and development. The conclusions of the study results is the availability of HUMAN RESOURCES and facilities for R & D in the PSTA has fulfilled requirements according the guidelines of KNAPPP 02:2017, but to meet the industrial age 4.0 still needs to be improved.

[en] This Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) provides the overall Quality Assurance (QA) program requirements, technical planning, and general quality practices to be applied to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Environmental Management (EM) Nevada Program Soils Activity. The QAP requirements are consistent with the Quality Systems for Environmental Data and Technology Programs–Requirements with Guidance for Use (ANSI/ASQ, 2004); the Intergovernmental Data Quality Task Force Uniform Federal Policy for Quality Assurance Project Plans (IDQTF, 2005); and 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 830.120, Quality Assurance (CFR, 2017a), which apply to specific activities performed under the Soils Activity. The EM Nevada Program owns and is responsible for maintaining this QAP. Individual participants are responsible for implementing the requirements of this QAP in accordance with their own approved programs, processes, plans, and procedures. If a participant’s requirement document differs from this QAP, the stricter requirement will take precedence.
[en] Quality Management is a recent phenomenon. This is applied to products or services, with an objective to deliver high quality, reliable, worthy, enduring, product or service. The process is considered to have four main components: quality planning, quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement. Focusing on quality control and quality assurance leads to achieving quality management or ensures that an organization or product is consistent. In this paper, the applicable international standard for learning services and for the organization for education and training (learning service provider) is discussed and also the procedure to implement the management system.
[en] The quality of systems constructed from components that have been produced at enterprises in different locations is considered. A particular sequence of processes is required in order to improve the performance of enterprises involved in the design and production of such systems. That sequence is identified. The basic principles that ensure the quality of such systems are formulated: in particular, compatibility of the components is essential. The constraints associated with the system’s emergent properties must be taken into account.
[en] The objective of this study is the operational verification of an environmental dose rate monitoring network composed by several sensors. The verification of the study has been tested on the CIEMAT's Radiological Network, establishing a records quality assurance of the detectors using the covariance matrix and the eigenvalues. The technique has revealed an underlying records malfunction, which have not been appreciated by applying conventional surveillance. In this sense, the malfunction has economic and security consequences, which can be minimized with an alternative methodology, which guarantees the radiological protection of a local area according to the Regulatory Agency.

[en] Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environement (MOOSE) is a modular, pluggable framework for building complex simulations. The ability to add new objects with custom syntax is a core capability that makes MOOSE a powerful platform for coupling multiple applications together within a single environment. Documentation is not only a required component for a complete software quality assurance plan, but is critical to the overall success and wide-spread adoption of the platform by other researchers and institutions. Therefore, the notion of a modular, pluggable framework has been extended to the creation of documentation content. This report details the methodology for defining the NQA-1 compliant requirements in a manner that allows for the automatic generation of the Software Requirement Specification (SRS), Software Design Description (SDD), and Requirement Traceabiltity Matrix (RTM) from any repository revision.
[en] In 2019 the LHCb RICH detector will be upgraded to increase the read out rate from 1 MHz to 40 MHz. As a consequence, the current Hybrid Photon Detectors will have to be replaced. Multi-anode Photomultiplier Tubes (MaPMTs) from Hamamatsu with 64-channels will be used: the 1-in. R13742 and the 2-in. R13743 MaPMTs (custom modifications of the MaPMTs R11625 and R12699). Quality assurance testing of these MaPMTs using custom-developed readout electronics has started. We present the design and realisation of the test facilities to ensure consistency in testing and validation. A total of 3100 units of the R13742 and 450 units of the R13743 will be tested requiring high efficiency and reliability from the test stations. We report on the test programme and protocols, characterising the units and assuring compliance with specifications. First results of testing and detector characterisation will be presented, based on the pre-series production, comprising 54 units of R13742 and 20 units of R13743.
[en] The 26. National Congress of the Argentine College of Interventional Cardioangiologists was organized by the Argentine College of Interventional Cardioangiologists, in Mar del Plata city, between the 18 and 20, November 2016. In this event, documents were presented on issues related to nuclear medicine, among others: radioprotection; cardiovascular system; quality assurance; dosimetry; ionizing radiations; etc.
[en] The comparisons have a wide international use to evaluate the performance of the laboratories, as well as to provide independent demonstrations of competence. The Secondary Laboratory of Dosimetry Calibration of Cuba has made use of the comparisons since its emergence and following this experience has promoted its use as a tool to improve reference dosimetry in Latin America. Countries such as Ecuador and Colombia have benefited from these actions and show satisfactory results in comparisons for bundles of Cs-137 and Co-60 in terms of kerma in air and absorbed dose in water. These comparisons allow the metrological confirmation of the implementation of standardized calibration methods in radiological protection and radiotherapy, as well as evaluating the effectiveness of the corrective measures introduced, which take into account the latest developments in these subjects. Discrepancies of up to 6.5% can be avoided by applying the proposed corrections in the use of patterns, calibration distances and radiation fields. (author)
