Violation Description: 

On April 17, 2003, a Notice of Violation and Proposed Imposition of Civil Penalty in the amount of $12,000 was issued for a willful Severity Level III problem involving the deliberate failure to: (1) make required surveys to limit the dose to members of the public; (2) perform required weekly removable contamination surveys in the restricted and unrestricted areas; and (3) accurately record the results of required weekly fume hood face velocity measurements. Although the normal civil penalty assessment process would have resulted in a base civil penalty, the NRC exercised discretion in accordance with Section VII.A.1(c) of the Enforcement Policy and doubled the penalty due to the licensee's particularly poor performance surrounding the violations.
