Certrec’s Office of Licensing and Compliance (OLC) Chosen as Inspection Mentor for Nuclear Operating Plant

Unique Inspection Mentor program provides access to our team of seasoned compliance experts that can quickly assess and identify areas to target for inspection preparation to help improve regulatory compliance performance.

Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) October 31, 2013 — Certrec, a leading licensing and regulatory compliance service provider that supports NRC and NERC compliance, is pleased to announce that its Office of Licensing and Compliance Team has been chosen to provide Inspection Mentoring services for a leading nuclear operating company. 

Many operating plants are facing challenges in effectively preparing for major inspections due to the loss of skills and tribal knowledge from employee retirement, budget pressures, and resource challenges. With pressure to improve performance, many compliance managers are realizing that a change in approach is needed. 

Seeking to establish a process to support inspection preparation and conduct, the operating company chose Certrec’s Inspection Mentoring Solution. “Certrec’s Inspection Mentor program is a unique service that allows nuclear compliance managers to leverage our entire organization’s applicable operating experience with a range of inspection topics and performance indicator issues on an as needed basis,” says Ted Enos, President of Certrec. 

“It’s difficult for a single individual to move a plant from fire drill response to a well-managed detection and prevention mode of operation,” Enos notes. “Results-focused mentoring and coaching from experts like ours can quickly cut through the complexity of continual changes to the regulations and the regulatory environment, excessive information, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) inspections. 

By participating in the Inspection Mentoring program, the nuclear plant expects to benefit through Certrec’s expertise in: 

  • Preparation for major team inspections (e.g. PI&R, CDBI, Fire Protection) 
  • Building proactive processes for identifying and resolving issues prior to inspections • Reactor Oversight Process Management 
  • Evaluation of the quality of self-assessments against industry standards and operating experience • Review of corrective actions 
  • Evaluation of CAP Programs 
  • Development of a 9500X “get well” program 
  • Manual Chapter 0350 Checklist Closeout 
  • NRC Communications
