“The inspection will consist of three reactor inspectors from the NRC’s Region IV office for two on-site weeks,” the letter said.

The list of documents included procedures for certain screenings and evaluations and a list of personnel qualified to prepare, review and approve them. Also asked for was a list with descriptions of all permanent plant modifications since the last triennial modification inspection.
