Corrective Action Program Improvements – Aggregate Lessons Learned
Whitepaper prepared by Bruce O’Brien – President and CEO
To discuss lessons learned and key restraints to improving the elements of Performance Improvement (PI), Corrective Action Program (CAP) and ensuring elements inspected by the regulator under Problem Identification and Resolution (PI&R) are met.
Since the inception of the Reactor Oversight Process (ROP) in 2000, seven sites have been placed in Column 4 of the ROP Action Matrix. Two additional sites have transitioned through Column 5 to Manual Chapter (MC) 0350 (Oversight of Reactors in a Shutdown Condition). Both Column 4 and MC 0350 require significant assessment and causal analysis as basis for developing the required Performance Improvement Plan.
