acceptance of the Contract.

5.2.5 Quality Assurance Records shall be compiled in accordance with the requirements in
NCA-4134.17 of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section III Subsection NCA.

5.2.6 The Contractor shall utilize Quality Control program ISO-9000 to verify that items and services,
including subcontracted items and services, comply with contractual requirements and

5.3 Quality Assurance Audit

5.3.1 The Purchaser will audit the quality assurance and control system of the Contractor.
The followings are the major items of the audit.

(1) Organization of responsibilities.

(2) Manufacturing facilities and their availability.
(3) Control system of;
* Production and manufacturing facilities.
* Tools, instruments and equipment.
* Documentation.
(4) Mechanical, non-destructive testing and other special equipment for testing.
(5) Training and education system for operators.
(6) Qualification system for operators of non-destructive examination.

PNC-TQ-XTAN4-0007 Rev.0

(7) Welder qualification system, and qualification and control system of welding procedure and
(8) Control system of manufacturing drawing.
(9) Procurement control.

5.3.2 The result of the Purchaser’s audit, whether the Contractor’s quality assurance and control
system is judged good enough to supply the piping system or not, will be informed to the
Contractor within one (1) month.
The Contractor shall not start any manufacturing work without remedial action and the
Purchaser’s approval.

6 Fabrication Work Schedule

6.1 General

This specification covers requirements for fabrication work schedule for piping system.

7 Bill of Material for Piping

7.1 General

7.1.1 All pipe sizes are shown in nominal diameter(DN) in mm.

7.1.2 Nominal Pipe Size (DN) may be converted from “mm” to “in” as per the table below :

mm 6 8 10 15 20 25 32 40 50 65 80 90 100 125

in. 1/8 1/4 3/8 1/2 3/4 1 1-1/4 1-1/2 2 2-1/2 3 3-1/2 4 5

7.1.3 65mm DN and larger shall be prefabricated at the Contractor’s workshops, unless otherwise

7.1.4 Generally 50 mm DN and smaller are site run piping, except that the piping which have
quantities of “shop weld” and ”pipe bend” mentioned in the following lists are to be shop

7.1.5 Small stubs (50 mm DN and smaller) for connection of drain, vent and instrumentation pipe
which are shop drilled, welded and/or tapped on the main pipe shall be included in his
quotation, though these are not specifically listed in the attached “Bill of Material”.
Quantity of these stubs is very small compared with total piping weight and detail of these
stubs (location, number etc.) are not finalized at bidding stage.

7.1.6 Flange rating shall be in accordance with ASME B16.5.

7.1.7 Shop and site weld quantity mentioned in the following lists are designed in accordance with
