|NRC ADMINISTRATIVE LETTER 99-04:||AVAILABILITY OF REVISED NRC FORM 3, "NOTICE TO EMPLOYEES"|
All NRC licensees.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing this administrative letter to notify all licensees that NRC Form 3, "Notice to Employees," has been revised and to transmit a copy of the new version. This administrative letter does not transmit or imply any new or changed requirements or staff positions. No specific action or written response is required.
Section 19.11 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 19.11) states that licensees shall post the current version of NRC Form 3 in a sufficient number of conspicuous places to permit individuals engaged in licensed activities to observe the postings on the way to and from any licensee location to which NRC Form 3 applies. NRC Form 3 outlines certain responsibilities and rights of employers and employees who work in companies regulated by NRC. Additional information may be found in "Reporting Safety Concerns to the NRC," NUREG/BR-0240, Revision 1, dated September 1998. This NUREG is available from the NRC's Office of Public Affairs and is on the NRC Web site.
On July 8, 1999, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) agreed that this revised notice provides the information contained in OSHA's 29 CFR 24 notice and is an acceptable substitute. The incorporation of this information in NRC's Form 3 supersedes the existing practice in which interested parties copied the 29 CFR 24 notice from OSHA's Internet Web site.
This administrative letter requires no specific action or written response. If you have any questions about this letter, please contact the person listed below or the appropriate NRC regional office.
