Vendor Quality Assurance (QA) Inspection Reports for New Reactors
The purpose of inspection reports is to document the inspection scope, observation, and findings of inspections conducted by the NRC. The NRC performs inspections to oversee the commercial nuclear industry to determine whether its requirements are being met by licensees and their contractors. The NRC performs inspections to verify the quality and suitability of vendor products, licensee-vendor interface, and review of equipment problems found during operation and their corrective action.
For inspections and related vendor inspections conducted by Region II for the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility, please reference the Meetings About Mixed Oxide Fuel page.
