Wackenhut Nuclear Services (EA-08-301)

On January 6, 2009, a Severity Level III Notice of Violation was issued to Wackenhut Nuclear Services (WNS) involving 10 CFR 50.5, which prohibits any contractor of a licensee from engaging in deliberate misconduct that causes a licensee to be in violation of any NRC regulation or condition of a license issued by the Commission.  An investigation conducted by the NRC Office of Investigations determined that multiple security officers employed by WNS were deliberately inattentive on multiple occasions at Exelon’s Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station.  In addition, multiple security officers deliberately failed to report observations of inattentiveness to their supervision.  These security officers put Exelon in violation of 10 CFR 73.55, which requires armed responders to maintain continuous communication with each alarm station and be available to immediately respond to threats, and Peach Bottom License Condition 2.C(3), which requires, in part, reporting of aberrant behavior.
