Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Powernet] Annual Radiation Protection Review Question- 

I am examining how we conduct and complete our site's annual Radiation 
Protection Review as required by 10 CFR 20 subpart B 20.1101 RP Programs (c). I 
have seen these reviews performed in various ways over the years and am curious 
how other utilities are conducting them, what type of procedural guidance you 
use, and whether you have a standard template for the review. If you can and 
are willing I would be interested in obtaining copies of your procedural 
guidance, perhaps one of your reports, and assessment templates that I will not 
distribute or share externally.

1. Do you have special planned assessment templates that cover each of the 
2. Do you do a complete (all aspects) program review annually?
3. Do you use the allowance from 10 CFR 20 Q&As question 118, that permits the 
review not to cover all subparts as long as all aspects are covered over a 2-3 
year review cycle?
4. Do you conduct your reviews using a combination of inputs? (e.g. NRC 
inspection results, QA inspections, INPO assessments, internal self-assessment 
and benchmarks, department performance assessments, and so on) This is how we 
do ours.

Our QA department asked us how other utilities conduct their annual reviews and 
if the whole program isn't reviewed annual, how do we ensure that all aspects 
are covered over the 2-3 year review cycle.

Kind regards,
