2. What are the regulatory requirements (codes and standards) associated with program development and implementation? 3. Who will develop a cost benefit analysis for the program? 4. How much time and resources are available to establish the program? 5. What are the qualification requirements (education, training, experience and others) for personnel? 6. Do program personnel require additional training (safety, confined space entry or others) or qualifications? 7. Are subject matter experts required to provide technical guidance during personnel development? 8. Are procedures required to perform work in the facility? 9. If procedures are required, who will develop, review and approve them? 10. Who will determine the technical specifications for test equipment? Test Procedures for Electromagnetic Testing The conduct of facility operations (in-house or contracted) should be performed in accordance with specific instructions from an expert. This is typically accomplished using written instructions in the form of a technical procedure. In many cases, codes and specifications will require a technical procedure to perform required tests. The procedure process can take many forms, including general instructions that address only major aspects of test techniques. Or a procedure may be written as a step-by-step process requiring a supervisor’s initial or signature after each step. The following is a typical format for an industrial procedure. 1. The purpose identifies the intent of the procedure. 2. The scope establishes the latitude of items, tests and techniques covered and not covered by the procedure. 3. References are specific documents from which criteria are extracted or documents satisfied by implementation of the procedure. 4. Definitions are needed for terms and abbreviations that are not common knowledge to people who will read the procedure. 5. Statements about personnel requiremen t s address specific requirements to perform tasks in accordance with the procedure — issues such as personnel qualification, certification, access clearance and others. 6. Equipment characteristics, calibration requirements and model numbers of qualified equipment must be specified. 7. The test procedure provides a sequential process to be used to conduct test activities. 8. Acceptance criteria establish component characteristics that will identify the items suitable for service. 9. Reports (records) provide the means to document specific test techniques, equipment used, personnel performing activity, date performed and test results. 10. Attachments may include (if required) items such as report forms, instrument calibration forms, qualified equipment matrix, schedules and others. Once the procedure is completed, typically an expert in the subject matter evaluates it. If the procedure is judged to meet identified requirements, the expert will approve it for use. Some codes and standards also require the procedure to be qualified — that is, demonstrated to the satisfaction of a representative of a regulatory body or jurisdictional authority.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
