STANDARD REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CALIBRATION AND CONTROL OF MEASURING AND TEST EQUIPMENT USED IN NUCLEAR FACILITIES
|Publication Date:||6 December 1990|
This Standard sets forth the requirements for a calibration program to control and verify the accuracy of measuring and test equipment used to ensure that safety systems 1 of a nuclear facility are in conformance with prescribed technical requirements and that data provided by testing, inspection, or maintenance are valid. These requirements also cover modifications and those activities occurring during the operating phase that are comparable in nature and extent to related activities occurring during the initial construction of the facility.
During the construction phase and when modifications are being performed, this standard shall be used in conjunction with the applicable portions of ANSI/ASME NQA-1-1989 2 and ANSI/ASME NQA-2-1989  with respective addenda to and including ANSI/ASME NQA-1a-1989 and ANSI/ASME NQA-2a-1989 to the extent specified by the organization invoking this standard. During the operations phase this standard shall be used with the applicable portions of ANSI/ANS 3.2-1988 3.
Owners who are committed to ANSI/ASME N45.2-1977, Quality Assurance Program Requirements for Nuclear Facilities, and the appropriate ANSI/ASME N45.2 series of daughter standards4 may continue to follow the requirements given in those documents in lieu of those found in ANSI/ASME NQA-1  and ANSI/ASME NQA-2 .
