NRC Proposes $3,500 Fine Against U. of Mich.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) could fine the University of Michigan Radiation Safety Service as a result of finding that the school had violated some safety regulations.
Right now, the NRC is proposing a $3,500 penalty.
The NRC conducted the inspection between June and September of 2013. NRC staff looked at the usage of licensed materials for medical applications, research and development at the Ann Arbor, Flint and Pellston campuses. The security violations were identified at the Ann Arbor campus.
Once the violations of the NRC requirements were identified, the university took immediate corrective actions to restore compliance, the agency claimed in a press release.
