    HSB has provided nuclear and non-nuclear inspection services for manufacturers as an authorized agency of KEPIC since 1999.

    KEPIC is defined as a set of integrated codes and standards applicable to the entire process of design, manufacturing, installation, and operation of electric power facilities including nuclear power plant, thermal power plant, and transmission/transformation/distribution facilities so as to secure their safety and reliability.

    KEPIC was developed by utilizing international standards applied to domestic standard power facilities, with the resulting code being equivalent to, or exceeding, technical aspects of the reference standards. Administration requirements are adjusted to be suitable for domestic situations, and QA requirements are differentiated for nuclear and the non-nuclear applications.

    Nuclear - The domestic criteria are established using the Certification System (QA certification program, Authorized Inspection, Registered Professional Engineer, etc.)

    Non-nuclear - Internationally recognized ISO 9000 QA certification system and the authorized inspection system for non-safety class pressure vessels are adopted for each application.
