ISO 19443:2018 is a quality management standard that applies the principles of the international standard for quality, ISO 9001, to the nuclear sector. It can be used by organisations within the entire nuclear supply chain for any equipment, product or service important to nuclear safety (ITNS).
The nuclear sector has tight safety regulations throughout its supply chain. Gaining certification from LRQA demonstrates that your quality management system (QMS) combines best practice in quality with the specific requirements of the nuclear industry. It also shows the quality and reliability of your processes as well as your focus in areas for development and continuous improvement.
