Violation Description: 

On December 19, 2011, an Immediately Effective Confirmatory Order was issued to Accurate NDE and Inspection, LLC (Accurate), to confirm commitments made as a result of an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mediation session held on September 28, 2011. This enforcement action is based on two willful violations involving (1) the failure to maintain accurate personnel monitoring information; and (2) the failure to comply with a state license requirement for radiographers to notify the licensee radiation safety officer (RSO) before attempting to retrieve a disconnected source. Three additional violations were identified involving (1) the failure to wear personnel dosimeters while performing radiographic operations; (2) the failure to conduct a radiation survey when a radiographic exposure device was placed into storage; and (3) the failure to immediately report the loss of a sealed source. Accurate agreed to take a number of actions including (1) providing and recording initial and annual training to deter willful violations and address specified related topics; (2) developing and submitting procedures for training the RSO or any manager designated to be on-call; (3) submitting copies of procedures to the NRC when performing radiographic operations in NRC jurisdiction; and (4) paying a civil penalty in the amount of $13,500.
