Counterfeit, Fraudulent, & Suspect Items

Counterfeit, Fraudulent and Suspect items (CFSI) can be a significant issue in any supply chain or project. In a nuclear facility the impact can be wide-ranging and damage the environment, the social standing and the value of the asset. LRQA have a range of services to support you in prevention and detection.

Why choose LRQA?

LRQA has been involved as an independent provider of assessment and statutory services for the nuclear industry for more than 60 years. As the UK's first ITPIA, we approved the design and conducted a full survey from the steel works to testing on site of the Calder Hall plant in the 1950's. Calder Hall was the world's first full-scale civil nuclear power plant.

We were also appointed ITPIA for the Sizewell B plant, now operated by EDF. More recently we were named ITPIA For the Hinkley Point C plant and for the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power plant in North Wales.

We have certified 18 Magnox reactors in the UK, Italy and Japan; 4 AGR's, 9 PWR's and 1 FBR.
