The areas clarified included the resident's use of pager and/or cell phones, response time to events at the plant, time in the resident program, and resident relocation policy.
 
IP 35703 (Graded Quality Assurance) is issued as a regional initiative inspection guidance for GQA programs approved by the staff and/or for conducting inspections in response to QA program inadequacies attributed to the application of GQA controls at nuclear power plants in accordance with the agency's PRA Implementation Plan.
