This is great, except for the error in the first line – the date.

Attached is a document of Q&A responses prepared by OPA and technical experts in the Ops Ctr. We CANNOT send this
document in its entirety down to the Hill as is, but we can use it to respond to individual questions. I know that we “owe”
answers to questions to a number of staffers. Please read through here and see if answers are provided to questions that
came into you anf get back to the requesting staff. This may also help those of you in the Ops Ctr with calls.
Questions that speculate about what could happen, compare Japan regs with US, and other speculative Qs are NOT
included here. Just not the focus now.
Thanks
Amy

Angela, Amy, Becki – These are fully approved by relevant folks in the Op Center. For your use. I have not
added to WebEOC yet as it’s not clear these should also be used by others…

Angela,
We have done our best to incorporate your questions into the Chairman’s Q&As that were developed earlier
today and provided to OCA. The updated set of Q&As is undergoing ET review and we will hopefully have it to
you in the near future. The attached provides a roadmap of where we believe the responses can be found. A
few questions fell into the broader “After this event is over, we will determine what changes need to be made in
the US” message. I did not directly incorporate them, but you can see a draft response in the attached.
Regarding the third question about past events, I did not try to evaluate all of the events you listed. I would
propose sticking to the party line, in that, “The NRC routinely reassess its regulatory requirements in light of
new operating experience and plant events.”
Regards,
Rob
