Globally Recognized Quality Standard for the Nuclear Industry

Conserving Resources Sustainably

ISO 19443 is a supplement to the internationally recognized ISO 9001 quality management system standard. A certification to ISO 19443 makes it easier for component manufacturers who already supply nuclear plants, as well as for service providers for nuclear facility operators to market their services also internationally.

This is of importance in all areas of the life cycle of a nuclear plant, from new build to decommissioning, as nuclear plant operators are increasingly demanding a certification. The great advantages of a nuclear industry-specific certified quality management system require little effort in comparison. If you have an existing ISO 9001 certification, you can save resources by expanding your quality management to include nuclear facilities.

Nuclear industry-specific quality management for nuclear facilities

As an extension to ISO 9001, in addition to general guidelines for quality management systems, the standard focuses on nuclear industry-specific standards with regard to quality and safety.

The standard is structured in such a way that it can be applied in all organizations along the nuclear supply chain that manufacture equipment or market services relevant to nuclear safety.

The ISO 19443 Certification in Detail

Our experts follow a similar approach as the one for the certification according to ISO 9001. The criteria of a certification for quality management systems are being supplemented by nuclear industry-specific services:

  • Risk-Based Thinking
    Our experts perform an extended risk analysis, taking into account worst-case scenarios, such as component failure.
  • Non-Conformity Process
    A key component here is the involvement of the customer in the event of non-conformities with regard to legal and customer-specific requirements.
  • Nuclear Safety Culture
    When looking at the corporate culture, our experts pay particular attention to the awareness of the workforce to working with highly sensitive issues.
  • CFS Item (counterfeit, fraudulent and suspect item)
    It has become apparent that in some cases there have been concerning irregularities with regard to qualifications and certifications in the nuclear industry. An accurate documentation is actively counteracting this development.
