NRC meeting to discuss safety performance of NFS Erwin facility

Staff members at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) have scheduled a meeting on April 23 with Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) in Erwin, Tennessee, to discuss the agency’s findings of the company’s licensee performance review.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the Erwin Town Hall, located at 211 N. Main Ave. in Erwin. The meeting, which will be open to the public and the media, will include a brief presentation on NFS performance, to be followed by a question-and-answer session. NRC officials will be available to address any questions about the agency’s findings.

“The NRC inspects NFS and other nuclear fuel facilities on an ongoing basis to monitor their performance,” NRC Region II Administrator Victor McCree said. “Our inspection reports are publicly available, and we also hold regular meetings like this one near each facility to discuss our oversight and answer local residents’ questions.”

Between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2014, a performance review was conducted in areas of safety, radiological controls and facility support at the NFS facility. No concerning issues were reported, and the NRC concluded that the facility met the agency’s standards for public and environmental safety performance. The NFS Erwin facility will continue to receive the required level of baseline inspections.
