While major accidents in the nuclear power industry are rare, the consequences of one happening are unthinkable. This industry must stand up to tight safety regulations throughout its supply chain, including service and product providers to the sector. A comprehensive audit of your quality management system can highlight areas for development and provide the reassurance needed by your customers.

What is ISO 19443?

ISO 19443 is the first internationally recognized standard for quality management specifically for the nuclear industry and all businesses in its supply chain. It is based on ISO 9001:2015 but has been modified with the additional requirements relevant to the nuclear power industry, such as the fundamentals of nuclear safety culture and radiation safety.

The benefits of ISO 19443 certification

Safety in nuclear power plants is of paramount importance. To achieve a high standard, safety must be embedded in the culture not only in the nuclear power plant itself, but also in all suppliers.

ISO 19443 outlines clear requirements for quality management systems to enhance the culture and quality systems in place. Gaining certification gives those within your organization reassurance that you are implementing best practices for their wellbeing and demonstrates to your customers and suppliers your safety leadership position.
