Temporary Exemption from Provisions of the FBI Criminal History Rule for Temporary Workers (Generic Letter No. 87-04)
NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
WASHINGTON, D. C. 20555
March 6, 1987
TO: All Power Reactor Licensees (Generic Letter 87-04)
SUBJECT: TEMPORARY EXEMPTION FROM PROVISIONS OF THE FBI CRIMINAL HISTORY
RULE FOR TEMPORARY WORKERS
As provided for in Public Law 99-399, "The Omnibus Diplomatic Security and
Anti-Terrorism Act of 1986," Section 606:
"The Commission, by rule, may relieve persons from the obligations
imposed by this section, upon specified terms, conditions, and periods,
if the Commission finds that such action is consistent with its
obligations to promote the common defense and security and to protect
the health and safety of the public."
As provided for in 10 CFR 73.57, "Requirements For Criminal History Checks,"
"Upon further notice to licensees and without further rulemaking, the
Commission may waive certain requirements of this section on a
temporary basis for temporary workers."
Accordingly, pending resolution by NRC management of an issue addressing
requirements for unescorted access of temporary workers to nuclear power
facilities, the Commission temporarily waives the requirements of 10 CFR
73.57 for these individuals.
