Start Up Notifications, Plan of Actions, and Implementation Plans
Click on each definition for a list of recently submitted SNRs, POAs, and IPs. (Note: For information on SNRs, POAs, and IPs that are not linked please contact your local Readiness Review point of contact.)
- Start Up Notification Reports (SNRs) — A quarterly report (or at a periodicity as designated by the PSO) by each responsible contractor to identify nuclear facility new starts and restarts scheduled in the next year. The report identifies the facility and, based on the criteria in DOE O 425.1D, specifies whether an ORR or a RA is required. The SNR also identifies the Startup Authorization Authority and updates previously provided information.
- Plan of Actions (POAs) — The document prepared by line management that describes the scope of the Readiness Review (RR), the prerequisites to be met to begin the RR, and the proposed Team Leader for the RR. The contractor and DOE both prepare POAs for their respective RRs (in some instances as specified in the SNR, a DOE RA may not be required). Both contractor and DOE POAs when required are submitted to the Startup Approval Authority (SAA) for approval. The designated RR Team Leader(s) develops their IP from the approved POA.
- Implementation Plans (IPs) — The procedural document by which the RR is conducted. This document implements the scope and direction approved in the POA and defines the depth of the review.
