NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
WASHINGTON, D.C. 20555
January 29, 1985
TO ALL POWER REACTOR LICENSEES AND APPLICANTS FOR AN OPERATING LICENSING
SUBJECT: OPERATOR LICENSING EXAMINATIONS (Generic Letter 85-04)
This letter is to request your best estimate of your need for operator
licensing examinations for the remainder of this fiscal year (February 1,
1985 to September 30, 1985) and fiscal years FY 1986, FY 1987, and FY 1988
(October 1 to September 30 of each year). This information is needed to
update the schedules you provided in response to Generic Letter 83-40. We
are also requesting that you provide requalification examination schedules
for this same time period. Please identify the dates you have scheduled your
requalification examination and your anticipated requests for licensing
examination site visits and the number of examinations for each visit.
Your best estimates are needed to plan for NRC resources to meet your
operator licensing needs. Please be aware that in response to budget
reductions the NRC has resources for only two visits tn each site per year
for administering licensing examinations. To meet this goal in FY 1986 and
beyond, the regional offices may be required to redistribute the requested
facility operator examinations visits across the entire fiscal year to even
out the examination workload and eliminate high demand periods. Therefore,
your submittal of this schedule does not guarantee the number or date of
examinations requested. However, an accurate estimate of the need for
examinations will allow us to propose budget modifications, if necessary.
You should also keep us informed of significant changes in your estimates as
they occur, so that we can keep our data base current.
Your schedules, in the enclosed suggested format, should be returned to Mr.
Don Beckham, Chief, Operator Licensing Branch, AR-5221, Washington, D.C.,
20555, with a courtesy copy to the appropriate Regional Administrator 30
days from the receipt of this letter. We appreciate your assistance. If you
have any questions, please call Mr. Don Beckham, Chief, Operator Licensing
Branch, at (301) 492-4868.
