NRC Issues Draft Regulatory Guide for Qualification and Training of Plant Personnel

The NRC has issued for public comment a draft regulatory guide (DG), DG-1329, “Qualification and Training of Personnel for Nuclear Power Plants,” describing acceptable methods for the selection, qualification and training of nuclear power plant personnel (middle managers and operators). The DG proposes Revision 4 to Regulatory Guide 1.8 and endorses American National Standards Institute/American Nuclear Society (ANSI/ANS) 3.1-2014, "Selection, Qualification and Training of Personnel for Nuclear Power Plants", as well as updates the guidance with additional experience gained since Revision 3 was issued in 2000. Comments on DG-1329 are due by April 13, 2018.
