About this event

Equipment Qualification, or EQ, is the practice of generating evidence that relevant components will fulfil their specified safety functions for the duration required during normal, abnormal and postulated accident conditions. The qualification of components for use in safety classified nuclear applications can be a challenging task, particularly for organisations new to the nuclear market sector or supplying to international projects.

TÜV SÜD is teaming up with the Office of Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and equipment supplier Friotherm to deliver a technical forum on Nuclear Equipment Qualification providing insights into the application of the equipment qualification process from three perspectives - a regulatory perspective, a manufacturer's perspective, and that of a certifying qualification body.  

Get a 360° view of the most important points and challenges and learn how to successfully navigate through an equipment qualification process.
