NRC bans college employee after violations at US research reactor

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued an order banning a college employee in the state of Oregon from NRC-licensed activities for three years and suspending the person’s senior reactor operator licence for deliberately providing incomplete and inaccurate information to the NRC for reactor operator licence applications.

The NRC said the individual also violated facility access control requirements at the Reed Research Reactor at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

The commission said in a statement it has issued Reed College with a confirmatory order regarding the case. The order says the NRC has given Reed credit for taking a number of corrective actions.
