PACKAGE RECEIVED WITH REMOVABLE SURFACE CONTAMINATION EXCEEDING APPLICABLE LIMITS

"Consistent with paragraphs 111.1 and V.1 of the NRC Confirmatory Order of December 14, 2017 in EA-17-090, GNF-A makes the following report.

"GNF-A [Global Nuclear Fuels - Americas] is making this report to the NRC Operations Center, pursuant to 10 CFR 20.1906(d)(1) to state that the NRC has concluded GNF-A received a package on September 29, 2016, which had removable radioactive surface contamination on its external surfaces that exceeded the applicable limits set forth in 10 CFR 71.87(i).

"This report is solely for the purposes of reaching resolution from an October 25, 2017 alternative dispute resolution because GNF-A maintains that the removable radioactive surface contamination on the external surfaces of the package (an open metal dumpster) and the removable surface contamination on scrap pipes contained in the dumpster did not exceed the applicable limits set forth in 10 CFR 71.87(i).

"Safety Significance of Event: At no time was an unsafe condition.

"Status of Corrective Action: Issue resolved during Alternative Dispute Resolution."

The licensee will inform the NRC Region II Project Manager, State of North Carolina and New Hanover County Emergency Management.
