SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 208 of the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, as amended (Pub. L. 93-438), defines an “abnormal occurrence” as an unscheduled incident or event that the NRC determines to be significant from the standpoint of public health or safety. The report describes those events that the NRC identified as AOs during FY 2014, based on the criteria defined in this report's Appendix A, “Abnormal Occurrence Criteria and Guidelines for Other Events of Interest.”

The report describes 12 events at Agreement State-licensed facilities and one event at an NRC-licensed facility. One Agreement State-licensee event involved radiation exposure to an embryo/fetus. The NRC-licensee and the other 11 Agreement State-licensee events were medical events as defined in part 35 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and occurred at medical institutions. Agreement States are the 37 States that currently have entered into formal agreements with the NRC pursuant to Section 274 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA) (Pub. L. 83-703) to regulate certain quantities of AEA-licensed material at facilities located within their borders.

The Federal Reports Elimination and Sunset Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-68) requires that the NRC report AOs to Congress annually. The full report, NUREG-0090, Volume 37, “Report to Congress on Abnormal Occurrences: Fiscal Year 2014” is available electronically at the NRC's Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/​reading-rm/​doc-collections/​nuregs/​staff/​, and in ADAMS under Accession No. ML15140A285.
