Legacy Waste Management

The RJR team has over 200 combined years of experience in the nuclear arena.  Our group has managed, designed, and operated both hands-on and remote operations for commercial and government D&D projects.  Our team can provide engineering design, project management, spent fuel handling, hoisting and rigging support, facility modifications, and materials testing and inspection services.

RJR performs work under its established ASME NQA-1 compliant Quality Assurance Program. Our program was established in 2005 and has continually evolved to better meet the intent of our work, our clients’ needs, and generally to improve its effectiveness. The current RJR Engineering Quality Assurance Program is organized to address requirements of NQA-1 2008, including NQA-1 1a-2009 addendum, as applicable to our work.  We have successfully been audited multiple times in the past in conjunction with performance of work at a number of sites across the country, and our program has often been found to exceed the requirements of NQA-1 through our innovative methods and procedures.

Our QA Program identifies a set of implementing procedures for each of the sections of the QA Manual applicable to our work. All RJR personnel are qualified and trained in the proper use of the program and perform work to the procedures identified in the QA Manual to address and implement each of the 18 requirements of NQA-1.  Whether or not a project is subject to NQA-1 requirements, this same discipline and dedication to quality is applied to all of RJR’s projects.
