TRAINING: No special training requirements have been identified for any documents issued with this change notice.
REMARKS: IMC 0609, Appendix A (Significance Determination of Reactor Inspection Findings for At-Power Situations) is revised to incorporate changes based on inspector feedback. Enhancements generated by IIPB and SPSB risk analysts based on initial implementation experience to date have also been added. A significant change is the credit given for operator actions in step 2.3 of the document. Clarification changes have also been made to the phase 1 screening worksheets. Phase 2 worksheets are in the process of being updated to include plant and site specific information. This document is an integral part of the Significant Determination Process for reactor inspection findings for At-Power operations and will be used by resident and region-based inspectors as well as by SRAs.
IP 62709 (Configuration Risk Assessment and Risk Management Process) is issued as a new supplemental inspection procedure (IMC 2515, Appendix B). It will be implemented, when selected, to perform independent assessment of the conditions associated with 10 CFR 50.65(a)(4) implementation problems. This procedure will be used in conjunction with supplemental procedure IP 95002.
DISTRIBUTION: Standard
