Maintaining the highest standards of quality in the highly regulated world of nuclear power is not just a goal; it's a necessity. At ARC Services, our Nuclear Quality Program stands as a testament to this commitment.
Experts Leading the Way for Nuclear Quality and Safety
Alex's journey from a welder to the Quality Assurance Manager at ARC highlights our emphasis on in-depth, hands-on experience. His role in implementing the Nuclear Quality Assurance Manual (NQAM) across our operations underscores our dedication to stringent quality standards, in line with regulations like 10CFR50 Appendix B and ASME NQA-1.
Our Nuclear Quality Program: A Focus on Compliance and Excellence
Our Nuclear Quality Program is not just about adhering to regulations. It's about surpassing them. We pride ourselves on our proactive approach to evolving industry standards, ensuring that our clients always receive services and products that aren't just compliant but are exemplary in their quality.
Navigating Industry Audits for Continuous Improvement
Our engagement with NUPIC and NIAC audits is more than a compliance exercise; it's an opportunity for growth. These audits are instrumental in enhancing our quality program, as seen in our recent consideration to become a member of NIAC, a step that promises significant advancements in our audit processes.
Realizing Tangible Improvements Through Feedback
At ARC, audits are not just assessments; they are catalysts for improvement. We meticulously integrate feedback from NUPIC and NIAC into our continuous improvement plans, ensuring that every piece of advice is transformed into actionable, tangible enhancements in our service delivery.
ARC's Quality Assurance Differentiators
Our unique internal processes for testing and approving craft are just one example of how we go above and beyond. Our recent completion of a FeedWater Heater (FWH) replacement project with over 700 flawless welds, nominated for an award by ENR, is a testament to our unparalleled commitment to quality.
Embracing the Future: Innovations and Trends in Nuclear Quality
Looking ahead, ARC is actively engaging with emerging technologies like Small Modular Reactors (SMRs). Our involvement in these cutting-edge projects reflects our ambition to not just keep pace with industry developments but to lead them.
