Ensure quality and consistency in the inspection of nuclear and conventional facilities, equipment and components
The DIN EN ISO/IEC 17020 specifies requirements for the competence of bodies performing inspection and for the impartiality and consistency of their inspection activities.
Obtaining conformity certificates issued by an independent technical expert organisation accredited according to DIN EN ISO/ IEC 17020, Type A, enables suppliers to prove that their products meet international standards over the course of their products’ lifecycles. Having a certificate of conformity will facilitate timely modifications and improvements that are vital for ensuring the ongoing safety, reliability and availability of all equipment.
Our inspection bodies are familiar with nuclear and conventional technologies as well as the relevant regulations and national / international standards. Accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17020, Type A, our inspection bodies have the necessary independence to provide objective and impartial technical inspection services. Our inspections will help to fulfil regulatory requirements and help to plan maintenance intervals. They may also be used as a basis for implementing an effective Ageing Management.
We assess all technical documentation in the licensing, construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning of technical equipment. This can cover information such as the design, manufacture, installation and testing of equipment. By inspecting the documentation, we can assure that the given requirements of local codes and standards, as well as licensee-specific requirements, are met.
Our experts determine whether your products comply with data sheets, specifications and requirements.
Our inspection services cover all systems, structures and components with safety significance.
These services are beneficial to nuclear and conventional power plants as well as to chemical and petrochemical process plants. They also bring benefits in automotive engineering, mechanical engineering, lightweight construction and the construction of process engineering equipment.
We offer inspections covering preventive, risk-based and failure-based maintenance of electrical, control and mechanical equipment.
