$3,000
04/18/2003 On April 18, 2003, a Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty in the amount of $3,000 was issued for a Severity Level III problem involving: (1) the transfer of licensed byproduct radioactive material to an entity who was not authorized to receive it, and (2) the submission of inaccurate information to the NRC regarding the transfer of the licensed material. Although the civil penalty would have been fully mitigated based on the normal civil penalty assessment process, a base civil penalty was assessed in accordance with Section VII.A.1.g of the Enforcement Policy to reflect the significance of maintaining the control of licensed material.
