SUBJECT: INSPECTION NOS. 50-317/39-80 AND 50-318/89-80

l

During the period of May 15 through May 25, 1989, the NRC I

conducted an inspection of the Emergency Operating Procedures at j

the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Units 1 and 2. l

l

At the conclusion of the inspection, the preliminary findings  ;

were discussed with those members of your staff identified in the i

enclosed report. Within the context of this report, the term

Emergency Operating Procedures includes the EOPs, AOPs, and any  ;

procedure referenced within the EOPs and/or AOPs. )

l

During the inspection, two concerns were identified as. potential '

restart issues. These concerns are (1) the philosophy that the

EOPs were to be used as a guideline vice verbatim procedural

compliance, and (2) the adequacy of the flowchart in EOP-0 used

to determine which of the EOPs should be entered to mitigate the

event (paragraphs 2.0 and 4.3.a of the enclosed inspection

report, respectively).

You are requested to respond, in writing, to the above concerns

within thirty days of receipt of this letter identifying those

actions taken r; planned. Your response should contain the

specifics of how the changes will be made, and a schedule of when

the changes will be implemented, including training on the

changes. As discussed in paragraph 9.0 of the enclosed

inspection report, we understand that the response to the two

concerns will be provided to the NRC prior to restart of either

unit.

In addition, Attachment 4 to the enclosed inspection report

identifies several other weaknesses relative to implementation of

the EOPs. You are requested to respond to the identified

weaknesses within sixty days of receipt of this latter.
