Issuance of NRC Form 398 - Personal Qualifications Statement - Licensee (Generic Letter No. 83-12A)
NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
WASHINGTON, D. C. 20555
July 11, 1983
TO ALL NON-POWER REACTOR LICENSEES
Subject: Issuance of NRC Form 398 - Personal Qualifications
Statement - Licensee (Generic Letter No. 83-12A)
Generic Letter 83-12, subject as above, dated February 24, 1983 was sent
recently to all power and non-power reactor licensees, enclosing NRC Form
398 (1-83). However, both the form and the transmittal letter appeared to be
applicable only to the power reactor community. It was our intent that both
types of facilities be included. This generic letter is intended to correct
any misconceptions the previous letter may have caused.
Even though Form 398 contains many questions that do not apply to operators
at non-power reactors, please use that form, completing only those questions
that are clearly applicable, and explicitly indicate "not applicable" (NA)
in the remainder.
In the set of instructions for completing this form, Item No. 12 - TRAINING,
is not correct as applied to non-power reactor licensees. As you know, it is
currently NRC practice to use the criteria contained in ANSI/ANS-15.4(1977)
N 380 for operators of non-power reactors, not those in ANSI/ANS 3.1 which
apply only to commercial power reactors. Therefore, for Item No. 12, please
follow the guidance provided in ANSI/ANS-15.4(1977). We intend to correct
the instructions on this item in future revisions to Form 398.
The remainder of the guidance in Generic Letter (83-12) is applicable to
both non-power and power reactor licensees.
You should begin using the new Form 398 within one month of the date of this
