NRC Proposes $6,500 Fine Against PA Company For Violations Of NRC Requirements

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is proposing a $6,500 fine against Precision Calibration and Testing Corporation in York, Pa., for willful violations of NRC requirements.

NRC identified the violations during inspections and investigations conducted from March of 2007 through February of this year. Those violations include failure to report the company’s bankruptcy to the NRC as required; failure to implement security requirements in a timely manner; and failure to provide complete and accurate information to the NRC.

While the details of these violations are being withheld because they are related to security of the facility, NRC concluded that the violations were willful. The problems associated with the violations, which did not pose a threat to public health and safety, have been appropriately addressed.
