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..)
