Availability Notice


The NRC staff has revised Section 2.3.2 of the NRC Enforcement Policy (ADAMS Accession No. ML12340A295) to disposition Severity Level IV violations for Fuel Cycle Facilities as non-cited violations if the NRC determines that the licensee’s CAP is effective, the licensee enters the violation in its CAP, and other criteria in Section 2.3.2 of the Enforcement Policy are met. The purpose of this draft NUREG, “Acceptability of Corrective Action Programs for Fuel Cycle Facilities,” is to provide guidance to the NRC staff on how to determine, from a licensee’s CAP licensing submittal, that a CAP is acceptable. After the NRC staff determines that the CAP is acceptable, the CAP licensing submittal will be incorporated into the license and implementation of the CAP will be verified by an NRC inspection using a CAP inspection procedure. After the NRC inspection verifies that the licensee has implemented its CAP in accordance with the license and the licensee’s CAP implementing procedures, then the NRC will consider the CAP to be effective for the purposes of Section 2.3.2 of the Enforcement Policy.
