The QA/QC department is responsible for maintenance of the quality documentation and performing
quality inspections. The inspections include:
- material certification and welding inspection
- dimensional inspection
- NDE (Non-destructive Examination)
- protective treatment inspection
- destructive testing
- outfitting inspection/mechanical completion
Quality documents include: ITP (Inspection Test Plan), PQP, procedures such as management of NCRs, production control, auditing.
Surveillance inspection of the assembly of welding activities is carried out throughout the Production process at pre-determined stages to ensure compliance with project requirements.
Dimensional control is carried out on an on-going basis by the Production Department. Dimensional verification surveys are carried out by the QA/QC Department at prescribed stages in accordance with the inspection plans and procedures.
Specific dimensional procedures may be prepared to document project tolerances and incorporate survey requirements into assembly sequences. Results of such surveys are documented on dimensional reports which form part of the final documentation package.
NDE is normally subcontracted to approved, specialized companies. Coordination and control of NDE activities is carried out by the Quality Control Department with use of a database system which maintains inspection status.
