Health Physics Questions and Answers - Question 399

Question 399: The NRC Form 5 (Item No. 8) provides for entry of multiple NRC license numbers. Some licensees may hold multiple licenses and provide common monitoring (e.g., a single set of dosimeters) for personnel working under any or all of the licenses. In such cases, it is proposed that only a single NRC Form 5 would be generated for each individual, listing all licenses under which they were monitored under 20.1502. Is this acceptable to satisfy regulatory requirements?

Answer: Yes, in general. For one nuclear power station, it is acceptable for the licensee to provide a single NRC Form 5 for an individual who works at one or more units at the station. However, a nuclear utility that has two or more power stations should not use a single NRC Form 5 for an individual who works at two or more different stations; a separate form should be used for each station at which the individual works.
