06/08/2007 On June 8, 2007, a Notice of Violation and Exercise of Enforcement Discretion were issued for two Severity Level III violations. The first violation involved the licensee's failure to meet the terms and conditions of an order issued to the licensee for not paying its annual fees. The second violation involved the licensee's failure to use a minimum of two independent physical controls that form tangible barriers to secure three portable gauges from unauthorized removal, when the portable gauges were not under the control and constant surveillance of the licensee. Specifically, the licensee stored the gauges in unlocked transportation cases located inside an unoccupied, unlocked hallway that could be accessed by unauthorized individuals. Although a civil penalty would normally be issued in this case, enforcement discretion was exercised because the licensee has transferred all licensed material to an authorized recipient, its NRC license has been terminated, and the licensee has no intention of conducting NRC-licensed activities in the future.

10/30/2013 On October 30, 2013, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty in the amount of $3,500 to Jackson Cardiology Associates, P.C., for a Severity Level III problem involving two violations. The first violation involved the failure to supply and require the use of individual monitoring devices by adults likely to receive a dose in excess of 10 percent of the limits in 10 CFR 20.1201(a) as required by 10 CFR 20.1502(a)(1). The second violation involved the failure to ensure that information provided to the NRC was complete and accurate in all material respects as required by 10 CFR 30.9. Specifically, on August 20, 2012, a nuclear medicine technologist informed an NRC inspector that dosimetry had been left at home although it had been misplaced at the end of June 2012. The technologist neglected to inform the inspector that payments had not made to the vendor to continue the contract nor were the services of a replacement vendor obtained.
