Nuclear Safety Violations at Los Alamos Lab (2007)

The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration notified the University of California of multiple nuclear safety violations that occurred at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2005. The Preliminary Notice of Violation (PNOV) cited multiple violations of the department’s nuclear safety regulations regarding operational events and performance deficiencies at the lab. Due to the University of California’s statutory exemption, no civil penalties were issued. However, the DOE would have issued a fine of $1.1 million based on the number and severity of the violations.
