Under the background of Sanmen AP1000 NPP Project, World’s First AP1000 Project, this article looks into SPMO management over contractor special process personnel qualification under EPC mode.

The project management mode is briefed and the theory basis of the study is discussed, in terms of nuclear safety regulation ASME NQA-1, HAF003 and industrial safety regulations, as well as quality management theory. Contractor special process personnel qualification is generally unmanageable, mainly resulting in negative chain quality problems, objective of the study aims at solving the problems and managerial dilemmas of contractor special process personnel qualification management on site.

Quality assurance system is maintained according to ASME NQA-1, and special process is implemented in compliance with the specification of special process control procedures developed for particular special processes, such as welding, NDE, painting, etc. Personnel training, authorization, certificate, operation experiences and pertinent requirements are specified in personnel qualification procedures. The method and process of special process personnel qualification management is created under SPMO quality assurance system, in the scope of SPMO management, while detailed and comprehensive classification of special process personnel qualification is defined with originality. On the basis of ingenious classification and management practice, the author summarizes a systematic management methodology of contractor special process personnel qualification under EPC mode. Classification management, standardized checklist implementation, and site surveillance are integrated for special process personnel management. Outstanding effect and performance are achieved by demonstrating the systematic management methodology, providing effective experience for follow-up AP1000 project which has significant meaning for enhancing contractor special process control and ensuring AP1000 construction quality.
