EVENT TERMINATION OR F8-9 F8 TRANSITION TO RECOVERY REV: 7 5.0 DISCUSSION 5.1 Recovery In general, an Unusual Event or Alert may be terminated without transition to a Recovery phase. A Site Area Emergency or General Emergency will probably require a planned transition to a Recovery phase and the establishment of a Recovery Organization under the direction of the Recovery Manager. In either case, termination or transition to a recovery phase, a review of 5AWI 1.13.0, "Plant Event Investigation and Recovery," should be completed. A determination to implement 5AWI 1.13.0 should involve the Plant Manager and Emergency Director.
Termination of an Alert classification includes the dismissal of the site Emergency Response Organization. Necessary in-plant or on-site follow-up activities should be coordinated and managed by the normal plant site organization. Post-Alert conditions may require the establishment of a Recovery Organization. The Emergency Director and Emergency Manager should make this determination based on the extent of damage or other considerations.
If a Site Area Emergency does not require significant repairs or analysis beyond the capabilities of the normal plant site organization, the event may be terminated without transition to a Recovery phase.
5.2 NRC Post-Accident Assessment It is expected that the NRC will, as a minimum, send an Augmented Inspection Team (AIT) to the plant to perform a thorough investigation of the incident. As a result, the AIT will request the following:
5.2.1 Any failed equipment not necessary for safe shutdown or operation of the plant will be quarantined. No work on failed equipment should be performed unless absolutely necessary for plant safety. The NRC will want to perform failure analysis on the failed equipment.
5.2.2 No written or electronic records be destroyed or erased.
5.2.3 Schedules be adjusted or additional resources be made available for NRC interviews with plant personnel involved with the incident. A court reporter may be present to transcribe the interviews.
5.2.4 Office space (or trailer space) be made available for the NRC AIT.

EVENT TERMINATION OR F8-9 F8 TRANSITION TO RECOVERY REV: 7 6.0 PREREQUISITES The Emergency Manager has assumed authority for reclassifications from the Emergency Director and:
6.1 An Alert has been declared and conditions indicate that plans for event termination may begin, or 6.2 A Site Area Emergency or General Emergency has been declared and conditions indicate the immediate emergency phase is over and transition plans to the Recovery phase may begin.
7.0 PROCEDURE 7.1 Termination from an Alert Condition 7.1.1 As plant conditions stabilize during an Alert, consider terminating the event classification subject to the conditions below.
7.1.3 The emergency classification may be terminated once the following criteria are met:
A. The plant is in stable condition with at least one fission product barrier intact, and B. Radioactive gaseous and liquid effluent are being controlled within the following limits:
- 1. Gaseous effluent release rates (or resulting dose rates) are within plant limits as defined in Section 3.1 of H4, ODOM.
- 2. Liquid effluent release rates (or resulting concentrations) are within the plant limits as defined in Table II, Column 2 of H4, ODOM Table 4.3, Old 100FR20 Appendix B (April 1992).

EVENT TERMINATION OR F TRANSITION TO RECOVERY 7 S 7.1.4 When the criteria for termination are met, terminate the Alert.
7.1.5 Upon event termination, ensure the Emergency Director is advised of the termination.
7.1.6 Review and approve the Notification Report Form (PINGP 577) and designate the Offsite Emergency Communicator to complete the notifications of state, local and site personnel in accordance with PINGP 1054, EOF Offsite Notification Call List For Reclassifications.
7.1.7 Initiate outage planning if equipment and plant systems are significantly damaged and extended plant shutdown is required. Refer to 5AWI 1.13.0, "Plant Event Investigation and Recovery," before any outage planning.
7.1.9 Provide the necessary resources to support the requirements of the NRC post-event investigation team.
7.1.10 Develop and submit NRC follow-up reports through normal plant administrative procedures.
7.2 Termination from Site Area or General Emergency with Transition to the Recovery Phase 7.2.1 WHEN the event has stabilized and plant conditions warrant possible transition to the Recovery phase, THEN assess plant and environmental conditions. PINGP 1102 and PINGP 1103, Shutdown Safety Assessment, may be used with other assessment tools to assess the condition of the plant.
7.2.2 Direct the Technical Support Supervisor and the Radiation Protection Support Supervisor to assess conditions and identify recovery actions necessary to return the plant to a normal operational or shutdown status.
The Recovery Action Item Form, PINGP 1017 should be used to identify recovery action items.
7.2.3 Direct the EOF Coordinator to compile all identified recovery actions on the Recovery Action Item Form, PINGP 1017. The list should identify short-term corrective actions (to be completed within hours or days) and long-term actions which may require an extended plant outage (i.e., weeks or months).
7.2.4 Direct the Recovery Manager to begin formulating a Recovery Organization.
Page 5 of 11
EVENT TERMINATION OR F8-9 F8 TRANSITION SREV: TO RECOVERY 7 7.2.5 When formulating a Recovery Organization, the Recovery Manager should consider the following:
A. Implementation of the Recovery Organization should be established using 5AWI 1.13.0, "Plant Event Investigation and Recovery."
B. There may be a need for offsite contract organizations to support recovery.
If the Site Area Emergency event does not require significant repairs or analysis beyond the capabilities of the normal plant site organization and the conditions of 7.1.3A, 7.1.3B, &
NOTE: 7.1.3C are met, then the Site Area Emergency may be terminated without a transition to Recovery. However, review and implementation of 5AWI 1.13.0 should be completed as appropriate.
7.2.6 Continue to assess plant and environmental conditions and when all of the following criteria are met, transition to the Recovery phase should be considered:
A. The plant is in a stable condition with at least one fission product barrier intact, and B. Radioactive gaseous and liquid effluents are being controlled within the following limits:
- 1. Gaseous effluent release rates (or resulting dose rates) are within plant limits as defined in Section 3.1 of H4, ODCM.
- 2. Liquid effluent release rates (or resulting concentrations) are within the plant limits as defined in Table II,Column 2 of H4, ODCM, Table 4.3 Old 10CFR20 Appendix B (April 1992),
and C. If Severe Accident Management (SAM) was implemented, the SAM termination criteria per the SAMG Diagnostic Flow Chart are met, and D. The potential for future degradation of plant conditions is small, and E. NRC Headquarters (or the Director of Site Operations of the on-site response team) concurs with the transition to Recovery.

TO RECOVERY F8-97 7.2.7 When the criteria for transition to Recovery are met, contact the Emergency Director and discuss the conditions.
7.2.8 Ifthe Emergency Director concurs that conditions for transition to Recovery are met, discuss the proposed transition with the NRC.
Ifthe NRC Incident Response Team has not been mobilized or has not arrived, the proposal to enter the Recovery phase NOTE: should be discussed with NRC Headquarters. If the NRC Response Team is onsite, the Emergency Manager and Emergency Director should meet with the Director of Site Operations to discuss the transition to Recovery.
7.2.9 Ifthe NRC concurs that transition to Recovery is appropriate, obtain the compiled list of short and long term corrective actions on the Recovery Action Item Form PINGP 1017. Review the list with the Technical Support Supervisor, RPSS, and Recovery Manager to ensure all items have been addressed.
7.2.10 Upon review completion, schedule and conduct a meeting with the Emergency Director and Recovery Manager. The meeting should include:
A. Review of activities in progress, long term problems and established interfaces.
B. Review of the identified recovery actions.
C. Identification of additional resources or organizations needed to support Recovery.
D. Establishment of a Recovery Organization.
E. Establish a method and turnover rate of existing Emergency Organization to the Recovery Organization.
7.2.11 The transition to Recovery meeting should conclude with the Emergency Manager authorizing the termination of the emergency event, authorizing Recovery and designating the Recovery Manager in charge of the plant's recovery activities.
7.2.12 Advise the TSC when the transition to Recovery is made.
