Manufacturers entering the ASME nuclear market need to ensure their own suppliers and subcontractors are delivering materials in conformance with the ASME code. This is done by utilising the services of a lead auditor qualified to NQA-1.
Following market requests, LR Insurance, Inc.* has now developed and published the MS20-01-019 standard, which complies with the ASME requirements for NQA-1 Lead Auditor services. This allows us to deliver this service to our clients on a world wide basis, thereby enhancing our value by giving them a helping hand and bringing confidence to stakeholders at the early stages of entering a new market.
The MS-20-01-019 procedure ensures that LR’s new Nuclear Lead Auditor services comply with the requirements of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) NQA-1 – of which all Lloyd's Register Energy Service Delivery Offices are familiar with.
*LR Insurance Inc. became Lloyd's Register Verification Limited on 1st January, 2015.
