Integrity of Requalification Examinations at Non-Power Reactors (Generic Letter No. 87-13)
NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
WASHINGTON, D. C. 20555

TO ALL NON-POWER REACTOR LICENSEES
Subject: INTEGRITY OF REQUALIFICATION EXAMINATIONS AT NON-POWER REACTORS
(GENERIC LETTER 87-13 )
The purpose of this Generic Letter is to clarify the staff position
concerning requalification examinations at non-power reactors. NRC recently
identified several licensees that allow requalification examinations to be
done at home or on-shift. This is not an acceptable means for certifying
individual performance, in accordance with the regulations and as further
clarified in the guidance given in Generic Letter 83-17, issued on April 8,
In the course of reviewing this matter, we discovered that non-power reactor
licensees were inadvertently omitted from distribution of Generic Letter
83-17 in 1983. This oversight was corrected when Generic Letter 83-17 was
transmitted on May 22, 1987, as an attachment to Information Notice No.
87-22. NRC inspectors are aware that licensees have only recently received a
copy of Generic Letter 83-17.
Please review Information Notice No. 87-22 for applicability to your
operator requalification program and consider any appropriate actions.
However, this letter is for information only and no specific action or
written response is required.
Questions on this matter should be addressed to Mr. Alexander Adams, Jr., at
