Evaluation Process for No/Minimal Release Scenarios in Biennial Exercises

Main Content

 Evaluation Process for No/Minimal Release Scenarios in Biennial Exercises OROs can utilize these defined methods to address all applicable exercise demonstration criteria in a No/Minimal Release Scenario (without a general emergency declaration) during a biennial exercise without the need to extend the exercise, or conduct additional Out-of-Sequence exercises. A No/Minimal Release Scenario is required once every eight years for licensees and is an option for OROs once every eight years. If OROs decide not to participate in such an exercise, they must participate in a “traditional” scenario response, involving a General Emergency declaration and a resulting PAR/PAD process. There are currently 32 Demonstration Criteria, of the 32 criteria, 7 apply only to an Ingestion/Post Plume scenario and 1 applies only to a MS-1 Exercise. That leaves 24 criteria which focus on a radiological release scenario.
