This paper briefly introduces the history, development, aims and roles, state of the art of Inspection Qualification in nuclear power industry in developed countries, such as US and UK. Then, the author reviewed the related works in China in past years and the state of art, the challenges and reflections of building China inspection qualification system. Furthermore, based on the actual situation in China, combined with the advantages and disadvantages of European Inspection Qualification system and ASME Performance Demonstration method, the author put forward some suggestions on organization, system and related technical basis to promote the establishment and development of inspection qualification system in China. It was obvious that the inspection qualifications have to be taken before nuclear power plant pre-service inspection or in-service inspection. The inspection qualification system shall be developed as soon as possible and it will improve nuclear power plants safety operation in China.
