TPC Wire & Cable Corp. is adding the Nuclear Quality Code 10CFR50 Appendix B to the current ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance program. The company plans to meet those requirements in June of this year. The code 10CFR50 Appendix B reads, “Quality assurance criteria are applied to the design, fabrication, construction, and testing of the structures, systems, and components of the nuclear power plants.” The code is written by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and has 18 points of measurement. A vendor must commit to these criteria before doing business with any nuclear power plant.
TPC has been compliant with the ISO 9001 quality assurance program for 15 years. A GAP analysis was contracted to identify the areas that did not meet the NRC guidelines for nuclear facilities. The company is assessing those items and making the required updates.
“As a supplier to the harshest industrial environments, TPC has been committed to quality assurance since the beginning,” said Reed Cushing, Vice President of Product Marketing. “This is just part of offering a high performance product and/or company.”
