Notice of Meeting Regarding Facility Staffing (Generic Letter No. 84-02)


                              January 6, 1984 


TO ALL APPLICANTS FOR OPERATING LICENSES AND FULL-POWER AUTHORIZATIONS 

Gentlemen: 

Subject:  Notice of Meeting Regarding Facility Staffing (Generic Letter 
          84-02) 

We have completed a preliminary analysis of the data submitted in response 
to a survey that was initiated in early December 1983. One of the concerns 
that emerges from a review of the data is the potential for a limited amount
of commercial nuclear power plant operating experience among members of the 
operating staff at the time of licensing. This concern has prompted us to 
arrange a meeting with you where we can discuss the issue in general and 
give you our views on what needs to be done to deal with the various problem
areas. 

The meeting is scheduled for 10:00 AM on January 25, 1984 in the Phillips 
Building, Room P-118, 7920 Norfolk Ave., Bethesda, Md. 20014. We request 
that at least one, but not more than two individuals, from each utility 
attend the meeting. A senior officer responsible for staffing and, if 
desired, the manager of training would be appropriate representatives. 

The purpose of the meeting is to inform you of our concern and to share with
you our present thinking on acceptable experience profiles for licensing new
plants. We would welcome a general discussion of the issues; no plant-
specific presentations are requested. Follow-on meetings with individual 
applicants may be necessary to discuss plant-specific issues and their 
resolution. 

Please advise the NRR Project Manager by January 20, 1984 if you will not be
able to attend. 


                              Darrell G. Eisenhut, Director 
                              Division of Licensing  
                              Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation
