The U. S. Department of Energy's Yucca Mountain Project is implementing a quality assurance program that fulfills the requirements of the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as set forth in 10 CFR Part 60, Subpart G-Quality Assurance. Additional guidance for this program was provided in NUREG 1318, 'Technical Position on Items and Activities in the High-Level Waste Geologic Repository Program Subject to Quality Assurance Requirements' for identification of items and activities important to public radiological safety and waste isolation for placement on a 'Q-List' and 'Quality Activities List' and also for graded application of QA measures. The process and organization for implementing this guidance is discussed.
