NRC Seeks Public Input to Revise Safety Inspection Program for Fuel Cycle Facilities
This meeting is the first of several which will be held over the next two years to factor public comments into the revised fuel facility safety inspection program. Those who seek background information on this initiative may read "Evaluation and Proposed Revision of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facility Safety Inspection Program"

Steam Generator Tube Integrity Program
The areas addressed by the program include (a) evaluation of procedures and equipment used for inservice inspection (ISI) of steam generator tubes, and recommendations of criteria and requirements for improving the reliability and accuracy of ISI, and (b) validation and improvement of correlations and models for evaluating integrity and leakage of degraded steam generator tubes.

NDE Procedures and Qualifications: Questions and Answers
In the Summer 1999 National Board Bulletin article a list of questions were presented by NDE workshop instructor William Plumstead (The National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors).
