Quality assurance, as covered by this practice, comprises all those planned and systematic actions necessary to provide adequate confidence that safety-related coating work in nuclear facilities as defined in Guide D 5144, will perform satisfactorily in service.
It is not practical to impose all the requirements of this practice on certain specific items that require only a small quantity of coating material. The owner, consistent with his formal Quality Assurance Program, may accept affidavits of compliance or certification attesting to the quality of a shop or field coating for such items. If required by licensing commitment; safety-related coatings that are not qualified or for which the quantification basis is indeterminate as defined in Guide D 5144, shall be identified, quantified, and documented.
This practice may be incorporated in a project specification by direct reference or may be used to provide guidelines for the quality assurance program for coatings, on the basis of the owner'requirements. Effective use of this practice may also require the incorporation of applicable sections in project specifications for coatings on concrete, steel, equipment, and other related items.View Less
