50.73 Licensee Event Reports that may report Defects and Noncompliance
For persons licensed to operate a nuclear power plant under 10 CFR part 50 or part 52, the evaluation of potential defects and appropriate reporting of defects under §§ 50.72, 50.73, or § 73.71 satisfies each person's evaluation, notification, and reporting obligation to report defects under 10 CFR Part 21. There is no rule that requires a licensee to mention Part 21 when using these alternate reporting means. In order to improve the sharing of Operating Experience with the industry, and increase reactor safety, the NRC will now post certain 50.73 Licensee Event Reports to the table located on this page when the report identifies the existence of a manufacturing defect that has or could cause a loss of safety function. It is important to note that the information contained in a Licensee Event Report (LER) is provided by the licensee, and has not been verified by the NRC to constitute a defect as described in 10 CFR Part 21. The information presented in the following table is provided for information purposes only, and licensees are not required to take any specific action based upon the information provided therein.
