NRC Action Number
NRC Action Type Date Issued Description
Ms. Traci Hollingshead
ORDER 05/19/2022 On May 19, 2022, the NRC issued a confirmatory order (CO) to Ms. Hollingshead confirming commitments reached as a part of an alternate dispute resolution (ADR) mediation settlement agreement between Ms. Hollingshead and the NRC.  The ADR mediation and subsequent CO were based on the results of an investigation at Avera McKennan (licensee) in which the NRC identified an apparent violation of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 10 CFR 30.10(a)(1) “Deliberate Misconduct” associated with Ms. Hollingshead, the licensee radiation safety officer, for willfully failing to assure that the licensee determined doses of unsealed byproduct material for medical use as required by 10 CFR10 CFR 35.63(a). Ms. Hollingshead disagrees that a violation of 10 CFR 35.63(a) occurred and that deliberate misconduct was associated with the apparent violation. The parties agree to disagree on whether the violation occurred. Additionally, Ms. Hollingshead agreed to complete wide-ranging actions that are expected to improve the licensee program, as fully described in the CO. In consideration of the actions and commitments outlined in the CO, the NRC agrees not to issue a notice of violation for the apparent violation.
