4.6. Quality Assurance

At all life cycle stages of the nuclear industry facilities the Concern defines its quality assurance policy on the basis of the main goals of its activity — cost-efficient generation and reliable supply of electricity and heat to consumers while assuring the safety priority.

QUALITY POLICY

The Concern's integrated quality system is based on the ISO 9000 standards, federal standards and rules NP-090-11 — Requirements for Quality Assurance Programs for Nuclear Facilities, and IAEA manuals on safety of nuclear units of GS-R series (General Safety Requirements).

The Concern is implementing the Quality Policy Statement with its basic provision concerning cost-effective power generation and reliable supply of electricity and heat to consumers, while maintaining unconditional compliance with safety requirements.

QUALITY POLICY IMPLEMENTATION

All activities regarding the Concern's quality system development scheduled for 2015 by administrative orders of the Concern were performed in full. The Concern achieved the quality targets set for 2015 by Rosatom State Corporation (as confirmed by monitoring of the existing system of quality management in the civil segment of Rosenergoatom Concern JSC division) in the following areas: coordination of engineering documentation, manufacturing inspection, acceptance control, assembly and construction work inspection, commissioning control, maintenance and operation activities.
