NRC Action Type Date Issued Description
Rudy Ontiveros
IAORDER 09/25/2015 On September 25, 2015, the NRC issued Mr. Rudy Ontiveros, formerly employed as a security officer, a Severity Level III Notice of Violation for a violation of 10 CFR 50.5, "Deliberate Misconduct." Specifically, Mr. Ontiveros deliberately submitted inaccurate information to Energy Northwest's Columbia Generating Station (Licensee), when completing a reinstatement personnel history questionnaire (PHQ). He indicated on his PHQ that he had not violated the licensee's fitness-for-duty program and had not used illegal substances in violation of federal law since his last unescorted access period, when in fact he had done both. Mr. Ontiveros subsequently admitted to the use of an illegal substance and that he submitted a substitute urine sample in an effort to subvert the fitness-for-duty test to avoid detection of illegal substance usage. The submittal of accurate information is material to the NRC and is required by NRC regulations in 10 CFR Part 26, "Fitness for Duty Programs."
