Editorial Change:
1.1 This guide delineates the requirements for development of procedures for the qualification of personnel who perform inspection of coating work. These activities are accomplished to verify conformance to specified requirements for nuclear facility coating work whose satisfactory performance is required in order not to compromise safety-related coating systems.

1.2 This guide provides a uniform interpretation of the intent of the requirements in ANSI/ASME N45.2.6 for the inspection of coating work in nuclear facilities.

1.3 This guide meets the intent of ANSI/ASME NQA-1.

1.4 It is the intent of this guide to provide a recommended basis for qualification, not to mandate a singular basis for all qualifications. Variations or simplifications of the qualifications described in this guide may be appropriate for special coating work other than safety-related coating systems. Similarly, the qualification and certification process might be abbreviated for work of minor scope such as touch-up.

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 whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
