| While all fuel was removed from the Brunswick Unit 2 reactor vessel for a    |
| scheduled refueling outage, an inadvertent reactor protection system         |
| actuation resulted in the insertion of one control rod (#50-31).  The        |
| invalid scram signal was due to maintenance already underway on the "2A" DC  |
| switchboard (removed from service under clearance, half scram signal present |
| on RPS "A" channel due to de-energization of reactor protection system       |
| instrumentation) and an inadvertent high level trip of average power range   |
| monitor B due to working on local power range monitoring instrumentation     |
| underneath the reactor vessel (half scram signal on the RPS "B" channel).    |
| The one control rod which moved had been withdrawn in preparation (or        |
| placing it under clearance) for control rod drive replacement.  Seven other  |
| control rods were completely withdrawn and under clearance to support        |
| inspection work inside the reactor vessel.  These rods did not move during   |
| this event, due to being under clearance.  This event has no safety          |
| significance.  There was no fuel inside the reactor vessel at the time of    |
| this event.                                                                  |

| A source rack failed to return to the shielded position in the pool at       |
| Sterigenic's irradiator facility in Gurnee, IL.  The licensee investigated   |

| source rack and make repairs.  The source rack has been reloaded and the     |
