Specifically XCEL NDT failed to meet the requirements in 10 CFR 34.43(c) when it permitted an individual to act as a radiographer's assistant on September 22, 2016, and the individual had not developed competence to use, under the personal supervision of the radiographer, the radiographic exposure devices, sealed sources, associated equipment, and radiation survey instruments by successful completing a written test on these subjects and a practical examination on the use of the hardware. The requirements of 10 CFR 34.41(a) were not implemented on the same day, when XCEL NDT performed radiography at a location other than a permanent radiographic installation with a radiographer that was not accompanied by at least one qualified individual who has met the requirements of 10 CFR 34.43(c).
