QUALITY CONTROL PROGRAM
ICM FUNDAMENTALS OF QC MANUAL PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
The essential outline for ICM QC program development begins with a detailed assessment of your company’s primary job scope. ICM’s focuses on:
• A well documented and detailed description of work scope for each process, and develop company wide
procedures and control points for inspection (receiving inspection, welder qualification, bonding
qualification, bolt torque records, pressure testing, applicable procedures, code mandated hold points for
government regulated inspections, engineering specific procedures etc.).
• Documenting and control of all non-conforming parts or issues. This includes data on the discrepancy, as well as how to effectively handle any non-conforming attributes.
• Establish QA methods and hold points through use of approved ITPs (Inspection Test Plans) for the process/code in which the product is to adhere to.
• Develop an outline which all suppliers must adhere to (internal suppliers and external suppliers)
• Define any and all regulatory (code) requirements for applicable corporate qualifications (Ex. ASME “R” “S” “U” Stamps..)
QC PROGRAM AND QUALITY CONTROL MANUAL DEVELOPMENT
ICM drafts Quality Control Manuals to reflect each company’s specific business model. If your organization deals with high pressure steam and mechanical piping (for example), a similar layout will be implemented:
• Table of Contents
• Statement of Authority and Responsibility
• Glossary (terms and definitions)
• Organizational Chart
• Manual Control
• Drawings, Designs and Specifications
• Material Control and Proper Handling
• Examination and Inspection Program
• Corrective Action and Non-Conformities
• Welding Control Manual
• Non-Destructive Examination (NDE)
• Heat Treatment
• Calibration Control (Certification Lists and Logs)
• Records, Completion and Retention
• The Authorized Inspector
• Field Fabrication and Assembly
• Repairs and Alteration
• Exhibits Index and Exhibits
Why ICM QC Planning?
If you’re looking to add a simple control plan for a particular process, ICM drafts industry ready documents and procedures to add to your existing QC manual. The team at Industrial Code Management offers new processes, procedures, and the manner in which your employees qualify to the procedures. We can update your existing controlled copy of your corporate quality control manual.
We’re just a phone call away at ICM Arizona for Mountain and Central or West Coast ICM California.
What’s included in the Industrial QC Manual
Updates typically happen based on current changes made within the codes, new industry processes, and the most common revisions are usually for changes in your work scope. We’ll have your organization’s manual complete: Controlled hard copy manual, uncontrolled secondary copy for shop and field use, .pdf file on CDR with navigable hyperlinks. All Quality Control manuals will include your company’s logo, contact information, and industry/trade specific information.
