CampCo, Inc.  (EA-20-084)

On June 3, 2021, the NRC issued an Order Imposing a Civil Monetary Penalty (Order) in the amount of $75,000 to CampCo Inc. (Licensee).  The civil penalty was imposed after a March 8, 2021 letter from the licensee disputing and requesting mitigation of the civil penalty amount proposed in the NRC Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty for $75,000 (Notice), dated February 11, 2021.  The Notice was based on nine Severity Level (SL) III violations involving the licensee’s failure (1) to distribute tritium watches in accordance with its exempt distribution license as required by Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 32.14, (2) to provide complete and accurate information as required by 10 CFR 30.9, and (3) to implement requirements in an alternative dispute resolution Confirmatory Order issued on June 20, 2016, as part of a previous escalated enforcement action (EA-14-080).  After consideration of the licensee’s response, the NRC determined that the licensee did not provide an adequate basis to justify mitigation of the proposed civil penalty amount and, therefore, the full civil penalty amount was imposed through an order.

French Onion, LLC (EA-21-028)

On May 18, 2021, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to French Onion, LLC (Licensee), for a severity level III violation.  The violation involved the transfer of byproduct material to a person not authorized to receive such byproduct material under terms of a specific license issued by the NRC, or an Agreement State, in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 30.41.  Specifically, from January 1, 2009, through February 26, 2021, the licensee transferred two portable nuclear gauges, which required a specific NRC or Agreement State license, to Gaston Engineering & Surveying, P.C., an entity not authorized to possess or use the portable gauges.

Gaston Engineering & Surveying, P.C. (EA-21-029)

On May 18, 2021, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Gaston Engineering & Surveying, P.C., for a severity level III violation. The violation involved possession and use of NRC-licensed byproduct material without a license as required by Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 30.3, “Activities Requiring License.”  Specifically, from January 1, 2009, through February 26, 2021, Gaston Engineering and Surveying, P.C., received, possessed, and used two portable nuclear gauges without a specific license issued in accordance with 10 CFR 30.3.

Hart Crowser, Inc. (EA-20-151)

On March 25, 2021, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation to Hart Crowser, Inc., for a Severity Level III violation. The violation involved Hart Crowser’s failure to file NRC Form 241, "Report of Proposed Activities in Non-Agreement States," at least three days prior to engaging in licensed activities within NRC jurisdiction, as required by 10 CFR 150.20.  Specifically, from August 14 through November 18, 2020, Hart Crowser, Inc., a licensee of the State of Washington, performed licensed activities for 73 days within NRC jurisdiction without filing the required documentation with the NRC.
 
CampCo Inc. (EA-20-084)

On February 11, 2021, the NRC issued a Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty (CP) in the amount of $75,000 to CampCo Inc., (Licensee) for nine Severity Level (SL) III violations grouped into four SL III violations and two SL III problems. The violations involved, primarily, the licensee’s failure: (1) to distribute tritium watches in accordance with its exempt distribution license as required by Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 32.14, (2) to provide complete and accurate information as required by 10 CFR 30.9, and (3) to comply with an alternative dispute resolution Confirmatory Order issued on June 20, 2016, as part of the previous escalated enforcement action (EA-14-080). Because of the repeated non-compliance and licensee’s poor performance history, a separate CP was assessed for each violation in accordance with the Enforcement Policy. Therefore, a total CP of $75,000, was proposed for eight of the nine violations ($15,000 each for three separate SL III violations and 2 SL III problems) to emphasize the importance of compliance with NRC requirements.
