The first-order QED corrections for valence electron are investigated for the neutral Ag, Rg and their neighbours of the Mendeleev Periodic Table within the framework of the Dirac-Hartree-Fock method. The including of SE effects in such procedure was done first for superheavy atoms. The obtained results provide the limit of the accuracy for the modern relativistic theoretical calculations for the superheavy elements and open the discussion about the accuracy of the QED corrections in the superheavy elements themselves.
