The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has reintegrated security inspection results into the agency’s Reactor Oversight Process (ROP) assessment program, effective July 1. The reintegration will be reflected in the August quarterly update to the ROP’s Action Matrix.
The NRC previously treated safety and security inputs to the Action
Matrix separately. Reintegrating security information provides a
holistic representation of licensee performance and will allow NRC staff
to more fully leverage supplemental inspection procedures and resources
when performance warrants.
