Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications
|Publication Date:||31 December 1997|
The ASME Nuclear Quality Assurance Committee will consider written requests for interpretations and revisions to NQA Standards and develop new requirements or guidance if dictated by technological development. The Committee's activities in this regard are limited strictly to interpretations of the requirements and guidance, or to the consideration of revisions to the present Standard on the basis of new data or technology. As a matter of published policy, ASME does not "approve," "certify," "rate," or "endorse" any item, construction, proprietary device, or activity and, accordingly, inquiries requiring such consideration will be returned. Moreover, ASME does not act as a consultant on specific engineering problems or on the general application or understanding of the Standard requirements. If, based on the inquiry information submitted, it is the opinion of the Committee that the inquirer should seek assistance, the inquiry will be returned with the recommendation that such assistance be obtained.
All inquiries that do not provide the information needed for the Committee's full understanding will be returned.
