NFS to shut down some operations as it implements major changes

By Erwin Record Online Staff Report

Nuclear Fuel Services Inc. is implementing organizational, facility and management changes that will enhance existing stringent safety controls and processes at the facility.
During the implementation, NFS will temporarily stand down certain process areas.
NFS developed these changes following consultation with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and both NFS and the NRC are committed to ensuring that the highest levels of safety commitment, culture and compliance are in place for licensed operational processes.
Suspended operations include production operations, the Commercial Development Line and the down-blending facility. These facilities will be brought back on line pending a third-party review and NRC review of the safety-improvement implementations. Other areas of the plant will continue to operate.
