Transportation & Power Generation


PRI developed an accreditation program based on the aerospace industry’s Nadcap program.

This program is expected to improve quality and reduce costs through improving manufacturing process controls and performance, reducing compliance risk, and eliminating potential redundant audits.

The program is intended to, like Nadcap, have broad participation from all industry stakeholders. PRI has worked with GE Transportation to develop the initial implementation.  GE Transportation, as part of its commitment to the highest standards of quality, has begun requiring that its special process Suppliers obtain a Transportation and Power Generation accreditation.

Accreditation is achieved after having an audit conducted by the not-for-profit Performance Review Institute (PRI) and participating in an industry-managed audit review process.  During the review process, supplier quality staff from Transportation and Power Generation industry subscribing companies, supported by PRI, work with Suppliers to ensure that work meets the requirements of the Transportation and Power Generation industry.

The program rules are being modeled on the aerospace industry’s Nadcap program, but the TPG program will evolve over time. All stakeholders, including Suppliers, are encouraged to help shape the program by sharing input and feedback.

If you have questions about the accreditation program overall, have interest in participating, or are unsure whom to contact with your questions, please contact Jon Steffey ( or +1 724 772 7505) or learn more at
