When new technology is deployed, whether with novel equipment or standard equipment in novel applications, it is critical to build confidence in ts safety and reliability before implementation. Given that current industry standards and codes might not address all potential modes of failure for new technologies, a systematic technology qualification process can be used to identify and mitigate any potential threats. Compliance with the required functionality and reliability requirements can be demonstrated through qualification methods such as testing and analyses, and the uncertainty or risks associated with the technology, system and interfaces can be eliminated or minimized. Several recognized technology qualification methodologiesare currently available to the industry that completely or partially address qualification of new technology: ISO Petroleum, Petrochemical and Natural Gas Industries - production assurance and reliability management [1], NASA technology readiness level assessment system [2], DOE G In summary, this paper reviews and examines the similarities and differences that are presented in the two widely accepted TQ methodologies.

This recommended practice is intended for qualification of technologies that are not covered by existing, validated requirements, and where failure poses risk to life, property or the environment, or presents financial risk. Guidance note: Even though individual components in a system might be qualified or proven, if they are assembled in a different way, the system as a whole may require to be qualified.

The same applies to qualified or proven technology in a changed environment. A process for qualification of computer software is outlined in App. This recommended practice can be useful for the qualification of technologies where the best way to show compliance to existing requirements or standards is not obvious.

Technology qualification is normally preceded by a concept development stage and an evaluation stage, in which the main principles for its evaluation are determined. These principles should be fed into the technology qualification process via the technology qualification basis.
