+ About the Conference & Who Should Attend

The Backfit Workshop will be held in conjunction with the joint PWROG & BWROG licensing sub-committee meetings on April 30, 2014 at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront hotel. The objective is to provide participants with the knowledge necessary to:  (1) identify potential backfits; (2) evaluate the applicability of the exceptions to the backfitting rule; and (3) assess and challenge NRC imposition of potential backfits. The workshop will center on the backfitting provisions applicable to operating nuclear power plants, which are found in 10 C.F.R. 50.109. 

The format of the training will be a combination of lecture and case-study-focused discussion sessions.  Lecture-based sessions will focus on:

  • Identifying Backfits
  • Forward-Fits, Guidance, and Information Requests
  • The Exceptions
  • Cost-Justified, Substantial Increase Analysis
  • Challenging Backfits

This workshop will be geared towards site practitioners and decision-makers that are in a position to recognize potential backfits that may arise through inspections and in other contexts. In particular, it would be most beneficial for site engineering, licensing, management, and legal personnel that are involved with licensing, regulatory and related issues.
