TVEL, PUBLISHED 19.12.2019

The Novouralsk Enrichment Plant (JSC UEIP; part of ROSATOM State Nuclear Corporation's fuel company TVEL) received a positive audit conclusion after the supplier audit performed by the foreign customer.

The supplier audit by Swedish company Vattenfall Nuclear Fuel AB (VNF) took place at JSC UEIP in October 2019, within the framework of a contract with TENEX, Joint-Stock Company. The aim of this audit was to verify the compliance of the Plant's activity to the customers' requirements, as well as to the international standards.

"During the audit, we examined the procedures related to production and storage of uranium products. We got a very good impression about the organization level of production workflows and the safety culture at the enterprise," said the head of VNF's audit team.

As the result of the audit, the foreign customer confirmed JSC UEIP's compliance with the requirements of the international standards for quality management system (ISO 9001:2015), environmental management system (ISO 14001:2015) and radiation protection (ICRP 103), labour occupational health and safety (OHSAS 18001:2007), and CSR according the UN Global Compact principles.
