What is NQA-1 Fabrication?

NQA-1, or "Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications," is a standard developed by ASME to establish comprehensive guidelines for quality assurance programs within the nuclear industry. Compliance with these standards is paramount for any company involved in the fabrication of components for nuclear facilities, as it ensures that every product is manufactured to the highest possible standards of safety and reliability.
