Inspection Management System (IMS)
Inspection Management System is a complete inspection preparation and management tool. It allows you to respond to NRC requests and share information securely. Certrec’s IMS is FedRAMP compliant. Version 3 is now available!
How is Certrec’s IMS Different?
Certrec developed IMS as a web-based tool to allow a plant to use a common website when managing NRC inspections. This tool allows users to quickly develop an inspection preparation package for upcoming NRC inspections, manage inspections by tracking NRC document request action items, and post the requested responses or documents for direct NRC retrieval. Controlled NRC access is managed by each respective utility. In particular, NRC access to each inspection is controlled by the utility to manage exposure to Freedom of Information Act requests. The IMS platform also allows the utility to track internal action items associated with inspections. Utilities within the group have access to the inspection information from all participating members.
Why Use IMS?
IMS automates a number of actions in inspection preparation, management, and follow-up that were previously conducted manually by both site personnel and by NRC staff inspectors. The result is significant cost savings in managing inspections. A Regulatory Assurance professional can manage more inspections at a time using IMS than using manual methods. Based on the experience of our clients, we have concluded IMS provides a realistic savings of $70,000 per site per year. These figures are based on experience and feedback from our clients.
