05000395/FIN-2017002-0230 June 2017 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to Provide NRC Staff Complete and Accurate InformationThe inspectors identified a severity level (SL) IV NCV of 10 CFR 50.9(a), Completeness and accuracy of information, involving licensee document,RC-13-0142, dated October 14, 2013. This document was a response to a request for additional information involving a license amendment request (LAR) to adopt NFPA 805 and contained an approval request, L12, associated with oil misting from the reactor coolant pumps. The licensee entered this violation into their corrective action program as CR-17-03961. The inspectors determined that the licensees failure to provide complete and accurate information associated with approval request, L12, was a violation of 10 CFR 50.9(a). Because this violation of 10 CFR 50.9(a) impacted the NRCs ability to perform its regulatory function, the inspectors evaluated this violation using traditional enforcement (TE). Since the TE violation is associated with a previous Green reactor oversight process violation, and the misinformation was identified after the NRC relied on it for issuing a previous operating license amendment, the TE violation was determined to be a SL IV, NCV, consistent with the language of the NRC Enforcement Policy, Section 2.3.11, Inaccurate and Incomplete Information. This violation involved TE; therefore a cross-cutting aspect was not assigned.
05000395/FIN-2016007-0131 December 2016 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to Implement Corrective Actions and Restore Compliance for Previous NRCIdentified SLIV NCVThe inspectors identified a cited Severity Level (SL) IV violation of Operating Licensee Condition 2.C.(18) for failure to ensure that conditions adverse to fire protection as noted in a previous NRC-identified SLIV NCV, 05000395/2016001-01, Failure to Implement Adequate Administrative Controls Following a Departure from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 80-1973 and Provide NRC Staff Complete and Accurate Information, were promptly corrected. Specifically, the licensee failed to implement corrective actions and restore compliance in a timely manner for (1) the noncompliance with 10 CFR 50.9 to provide staff complete and accurate information and (2) fire doors DRIB/105A&B currently do not meet self-closing requirements in accordance with the current NFPA 805 licensing basis and no actions were specified in licensees corrective action program to restore compliance. The licensee entered the issue in their corrective action program as condition report (CR)-16-04701. The inspectors determined that the performance deficiency was more than minor because it impacted the ability of the NRC to perform its regulatory oversight function and was dispositioned using traditional enforcement. Because the licensee failed to implement corrective actions and restore compliance in a timely manner, this violation is being treated as a cited violation, consistent with Section 2.3.2. a of the NRC Enforcement Policy. This violation involved traditional enforcement and a cross-cutting aspect was not assigned to this violation.
05000395/FIN-2016010-0131 December 2016 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to Meet the Quality Requirements Specified By NFPA 805The NRC identified a SL IV, non-cited violation (NCV) of the 10 CFR 50.48(c), National Fire Protection Association Standard (NFPA) 805, requirements. Specifically, the team identified the licensees inability to ensure licensing basis information was maintained consistent with administrative procedures to support the NFPA 805 Section 2.2(j) and NFPA 805, Section 2.7 requirements. The licensees failure to meet the quality requirements specified by NFPA 805 Section 2.2. (j) and NFPA 805, Section 2.7, Program Documentation, Configuration Control and Quality was a performance deficiency (PD). This PD was determined to be more than minor because it affected the regulatory process. In this instance, the licensee failed to ensure information to support the NFPA 805 licensing commitments was controlled in the manner specified by the requirement. This information served as the basis for the NRC to perform its regulatory function and had the ability to impact the credited analysis relied upon to reach and maintain safe and stable conditions in case of a fire. As a result, the team evaluated the finding using the traditional enforcement (TE) process based upon the guidance in NRC Enforcement Policy and NRC Enforcement Guidance. The team reviewed the NRC Enforcement Guidance, Part II, Section 2.2, Actions Involving Fire Protection, to aid assessing the significance of the issue and determined the issue to be a SL IV. A cross cutting aspect was not assigned based upon the TE determination. The licensee initiated CR-16-05060, CR-16-05074, CR-16-05160, CR-16-05276, and CR-16-05278 to address the NRC concerns.
05000395/FIN-2016010-0431 December 2016 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to seek or gain approval for risk-informed changes constituted a self-approved change which is inconsistent with the NFPA 805 requirementsThe NRC identified a SL IV, non-cited violation (NCV) of the 10 CFR 50.48(c), NFPA 805, requirements. Specifically, a Risk Informed Change was made that was inconsistent with Transition License Condition 2.C.18.(c).1 which stated in part: Before achieving full compliance with 10 CFR 50.48(c), ...risk-informed changes to the licensee's fire protection program may not be made without prior NRC review and approval. In this instance, the team identified the licensee failed to seek or gain NRC approval for riskinformed changes that had a more than minimal risk impact to the fire protection program during the post-safety evaluation issuance period date of February 11, 2015. The licensees failure to obtain NRC approval prior to making any changes to the 2.C.18 license requirements was a performance deficiency (PD). This PD was determined to be more than minor because it impacted the regulatory process. Specifically, the team determined that risk-informed changes made to a commitment specified by license condition 2.C.18.(c).1, which was based upon docketed correspondence from the licensee, required NRC approval. The licensee deviated from the stated commitments without NRC approval which formed the basis for the team decision to evaluate the finding using traditional enforcement (TE) based upon the guidance in NRC Enforcement Policy. The team reviewed NRC Enforcement Guidance, Part II, Section 2.2, Actions Involving Fire Protection, to assess the significance of the issue and determined the issue to be a SL IV. The licensee initiated CR-16-01490 and CR-16-05291.
05000395/FIN-2016004-0431 December 2016 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to Update FSAR with a New Design Function for the Equipment and Floor Drain SystemSL IV. The NRC identified a severity level IV (SL IV) non-cited violation (NCV) of 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 50.71(e) for the licensees failure to update the final safety analysis report (FSAR) with the latest information developed, regarding the design functions of the equipment and floor drain system. Specifically, the licensee failed to update the FSAR to reflect the high-energy line break (HELB) steam propagation barrier (SPB) function of the floor drain system following installation of new floor drain orifices used as SPBs. The licensee entered this issue into their corrective action program as CR-16-06003. The inspectors treated the noncompliance with 10 CFR 50.71(e) as traditional enforcement because not having an updated FSAR hinders the licensees ability to perform adequate 10 CFR 50.59 evaluations and impacts the NRCs ability to perform its regulatory function such as license amendment reviews and inspections. This was determined to be a SL-IV violation of 10 CFR 50.71(e) because it was similar to the NRC Enforcement Policy, Section 6.1.d.3, SL IV example of, a licensee fails to update the FSAR as required by 10 CFR 50.71(e) but the lack of up-to-date information has not resulted in any unacceptable change to the facility or procedures. Cross-cutting aspects are not assigned to traditional enforcement violations.

05000395/FIN-2013009-0130 September 2013 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedInstallation of a modification using a superseded version of a procedureThe licensee identified a violation of 10 CFR 50, Appendix B, Criterion V, instructions, procedures, or drawings, when it was determined that the contract employees failed to complete the electrical maintenance procedure EMP-391.003, Installation of Electrical Supports, Rev. 8, Change A, and falsified a data sheet associated with safety-related electrical supports by backdating it to a date when the previous (Rev.8) was in effect. The licensee took substantial disciplinary actions and entered the deficiency into the corrective action program for resolution as CR -12-03100. The failure to follow procedure issue was a performance deficiency and it would be considered a minor under the reactor oversight process (ROP) because the quality control personnel subsequently inspected the pull box; the components had been installed properly and could have performed their safety-related function. A review of other work performed by these contract employees did not identify any other issues. This minor finding was not warranted to be documented in a quarterly inspection report in accordance with IMC 0612. However, with respect to deliberate misconduct aspects, failure to provide complete and accurate information regarding completion of the electrical maintenance procedure EMP-391.003, Installation of Electrical Supports, Rev. 8, Change A, was a performance deficiency. This issue was dispositioned using traditional enforcement due to the deliberate misconduct aspects of the performance deficiency. Furthermore, the failure to provide complete and accurate information has the potential to impact the NRCs ability to perform its regulatory function. These individuals deliberately violated the requirements in the revised electrical maintenance procedure EMP- 391-003, Rev. 8, Change A, on July 16, 2013, in that they failed to follow the procedural requirements to obtain a quality control inspection after the holes were drilled in the concrete wall and then backdated the procedure to June 29, 2012, to indicate that the work was performed prior to implementation of Rev. 8, Change A, which had an effective date of July 10, 2012. In accordance with the guidance in Section 6.1, Reactor Operations of the Enforcement Policy, this issue is a Severity Level IV violation because it involved information that the NRC required to be maintained by a licensee that was incomplete or inaccurate and of more than minor safety significance. No cross-cutting aspect was identified because this performance deficiency was dispositioned using traditional enforcement.
05000395/FIN-2010004-0130 September 2010 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedFailure to Notify the Commission of a Change in Medical StatusThe inspectors identified a cited violation of 10 CFR Part 55.25, Incapacitation because of disability or illness, for the failure of the facility licensee to notify the Commission of a change in the medical status of one licensed operator within 30 days of learning of the change as required. This issue was entered into the licenseei12s corrective action program as Condition Report CR-10-03348. The failure of the facility licensee to notify the Commission within 30 days of learning of a permanent change in the medical status of a licensed operator as required by 10 CFR 55.25 was a performance deficiency. This performance deficiency was evaluated in accordance with the Enforcement Policy and determined to be a Severity Level IV violation in accordance with Supplement I. This violation is being cited in accordance with the Enforcement Policy Section 2.3.2.a.3 because it was a repetitive violation resulting from inadequate corrective action and was NRC identified. Because this Notice of Violation was evaluated in accordance with Traditional Enforcement, there was no cross-cutting aspect assigned. (Section 1R11.2

05000395/FIN-2010007-0131 December 2009 23:59:59SummerNRC identifiedInaccurate Fire Watch RecordsThe NRC identified a violation of 10 CFR 50.9(a) requirements when it was determined that you failed to properly oversee a security officer who was performing required fire watches. As a result, the security officer willfully failed to conduct a roving fire watch patrol and falsely documented completion of the fire watch patrol. After the issue was identified, the licensee took substantial disciplinary actions as well as entering the deficiency into the corrective action program for resolution. This issue was dispositioned using traditional enforcement due to the willful aspects of the performance deficiency. Furthermore, the failure to provide complete and accurate information has the potential to impact the NRCs ability to perform its regulatory function. Although the investigation revealed that no fire watch surveillances were actually missed, this issue is considered more than minor due to the willful aspects of the performance deficiency. In accordance with the guidance in Supplement VII of the Enforcement Policy, this issue is considered a Severity Level IV violation because it involved information that the NRC required be kept by a licensee that was incomplete or inaccurate and of more than minor safety significance. There was no cross-cutting aspect due to the issue of concern screening as minor because the surveillance was completed by other personnel in the area, although it was not documented
