NRC Inspection Results

January 20, 2017

In early December an NRC inspector arrived for an unannounced inspection. He spent three days reviewing the radiation safety program, looking at our waste records, survey reports, audits, and visiting radiation storage areas and laboratories on campus. 

We received one non-cited violation for a security lapse in a laboratory. It was not cited because the radiation safety staff immediately identified and implemented corrective action. A violation was received for improper disposal of radioactive waste material as stated in our license.  Corrective actions have been implanted and are in use.  

The inspector spoke very favorably regarding our program and staff. He was impressed with the knowledge and responsiveness of our staff and the quality of our program. Thank you for helping make this inspection a success.
