Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

Is there a sample plan standard that is being used in the nuclear industry for receiving inspection?
Are nucs using sample plans for receiving inspection? If yes, what are they using?

RE: Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

How many parts, and who is supplying them?

Many are 100% inspected, because the quantity and frequency are so low.
Many parts are 100% inspected because it does not make sense to develop elaborate inspection plans and QA exception/acceptance plans for items that are only irregularly purchased in mass, or what can be purchased commercially in bulk quantity as non-safe items. (Electric connectors, for example, are much different than 2x pump seals needed for a pair of reactor water pumps.)

A corporate "attitude" and training and mental acceptance of 100% NDE inspection of welds and paperwork and training and security and documentation elsewhere, for example, does not lend itself to a statistical "well, that is good enough" inspection of many other things.

RE: Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

Thanks for your response. Some items are not a 1 of and are received in quantity. QL material is coming from qualified/approved suppliers.

RE: Receiving Inspection Sampling Plan

EPRI NP-5652 is intended for commercial grade dedication, but can offer a baseline for bulk commodities.
