Humboldt Bay Radiation Protection Procedures

HPPOS-129 PDR-9111210340

See the memorandum from K. D. Cyr to J. Wigginton dated June 17, 1985.

This memo provides the following OELD opinion. Technical Specifications that require only that radiation protection procedures be "maintained" should be interpreted to mean that the procedures should be followed.

A broader reading of the word "maintain" to include "adherence to" is consistent with the intent of the Technical Specifications that the licensee have a radiation program to meet the requirements of 10 CFR Part 20. HPPOS-128 contains a related topic.

Regulatory references: Technical Specifications
