    ASTM D4286

    Abstract

    This practice provides a criteria guide and procedural method to assist utility owners, architects, engineers, constructors, and other selection agencies in determining the overall qualifications of a coating contractor to execute coating work for the primary containment and other safety-related facilities of light-water nuclear power plants. The qualification criteria and requirements address the essential basic capability of a contractor to execute nuclear coating work. The evaluation procedures contained herein are designed to be adaptive to detailed final qualification processes. Variation or simplification of the practice is appropriate for non safety-related areas of nuclear power plants, fossil fueled facilities, and other industrial projects. The nine evaluation categories, which detail the specific data to be provided by the contractor as essential to determining qualification status, are as follows: (1) personnel employed; (2) work experience; (3)equipment inventory; (4) quality assurance/control; (5) training and supervisory program; (6) safety program; (7) production/cost control report; (8) financial capability; and (9) current and projected performance capability. In addition, a tenth untitled category has been provided on the evaluation work for inclusion of other information pertinent to a specific project.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice provides a criteria guide and procedural method to assist utility owners, architects, engineers, constructors, and other selection agencies in determining the overall qualifications of a coating contractor to execute coating work for the primary containment and other safety-related facilities of light-water nuclear power plants.

    1.2 The qualification criteria and requirements address the essential basic capability of a contractor to execute nuclear coating work. Obviously, the specific capability to execute those requirements unique to a given project must also be carefully considered. The evaluation procedure contained in this practice is designed to be adaptive to this detailed final qualification process. Variation or simplification of the practice is appropriate for non safety-related areas of nuclear power plants, fossil fueled facilities, and other industrial projects.

    1.3 The overall capability of a contractor to successfully execute the varied and complex requirements of nuclear coating work is dependent upon competency in a variety of essential categories.

    1.4 The nine evaluation categories described in Sections 3-12 detail the specific data to be provided by the contractor as essential to determining qualification status. In addition, a tenth untitled category has been provided on the evaluation work described in Section 12 for inclusion of other information pertinent to a specific project.

    1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
