NRC Action Type Date Issued Description
Keith Davis
IAORDER 10/26/2007 On November 26, 2007, a Confirmatory Order (Effective Immediately) was issued to Mr. Davis, former Senior Reactor Operator at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station (SSES), as a result of a settlement agreement entered into as a result of Alternative Dispute Resolution requested by the individual. This action relates to an incident that occurred on June 27, 2007, when Mr. Davis reported to work and failed to report an arrest which occurred on June 19, 2007, for driving under the influence of alcohol, coincident with a single motor vehicle accident. Mr. Davis' SRO license and site access was immediately terminated and he was assigned other duties. Subsequently, his employment at SSES was terminated. During the mediation session, Mr. Davis agreed, among other things to: (1) write an operating experience report addressing lessons learned from this violation; (2) provide a written report to the NRC for review, subsequently submitting the report to a minimum of three national organizations for possible publication, including INPO and NEI; (3) provide a written response to the NRC explaining the reasons why the NRC can have confidence in his following procedures in the future; (4) provide a training plan for licensed and non-licensed operator training at SSES regarding procedure compliance; and (5) agree to the issuance of a Severity Level III Notice of Violation. The agreement did not prohibit Mr. Davis from all 10 CFR Part 50 activities but required Mr. Davis to inform the NRC before resuming work involving NRC licensed activities. In light of Mr. Davis' agreement, the NRC will not pursue any further enforcement action related to the incident.
Gregory Desobry
IAORDER 02/23/2011 On February 23, 2011, the NRC issued an Order requiring notification of future involvement in NRC licensed or Agreement State regulated activities to Mr. Gregory Desobry in order to provide the NRC with an opportunity to verify the effectiveness of corrective actions that Mr. Desobry had taken in response to his involvement in the medical events that occurred at the VA Philadelphia Medical Center from February 2002 through June 2008 and the resulting identified violations (EA-09-038).  Specifically, the Order requires Mr. Desobry to make a one-time notification to the NRC within 20 days of his accepting employment as a medical physicist in NRC licensed or Agreement State regulated activities.  The Order noted that Mr. Desobry provided a description of the corrective actions he had taken in a June 28, 2010, reply to a Demand for Information that the NRC issued on May 24, 2010.  The Order will be effective 20 days after it is published in the Federal Register.
