Compliance Project Management: Are You Falling Behind?

Complex standards, ambiguous definitions of compliance, multiple procedures, time-consuming tracking, regulatory audits; thank goodness you've got TAKTIX®

TAKTIX® is a web-based compliance project management tool designed by licensing and compliance professionals who've managed the complexity of regulatory standards, audits, and compliance requirements.
 
TAKTIX® bridges geography, streamlines project planning and tracking, and facilitates moving large and diverse project documents between teams and locations.


With TAKTIX® compliance documents are posted and organized into electronic libraries so that team members have concurrent access to compliance information. This single source of accurate project documentation is controlled at the administrator level - eliminating individual emails, overnight CDs, and confusion.


Because TAKTIX® is web-based, team members can collaborate on projects and document development as though they were in the same room. Planning authors and project reviewers can interface with each other's comments simultaneously - whether on site, at the hotel, on their iPhone, or iPad.

Updated Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR)

 
Managing an updated, Final Safety Analysis Report (FSAR) is a highly complex task involving many people - often performed at infrequent intervals. As a result, it can be a challenge to keep plant FSARs current and error-free.

What if managing your FSAR was easier? 

In this time of resource and the loss of institutional knowledge due to personnel changes and workforce retirement, you need a living FSAR - one that:
  • → Is web-based - available 24/7 to all employees
  • → Allows full text search - to improve efficiency and save time
  • → Incorporates existing workflows - to streamline the update process and minimize change management
  • → Frees resources for other responsibilities
  • → Allows you to feel confident that your Electronic Submittal will be accepted by the NRC

Having walked in your shoes, we create pristine electronic documents that accurately render authors' comments and changes that meet the NRC's requirements.  

Certrec Corporation is a highly qualified licensing, engineering, and IT 
organization that has provided services to the utility industry for over 20 years. Comprised of professionals with direct industry and task experience, Certrec understands the tasks and challenges of the FSAR update process and stands ready to help remove those obstacles. 




Online Reference Portal Supports NRC's Review of NFPA 805, License Renewals, Power Updates, COLA, and DCD Submittals

  In April of 2009, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published acceptance criteria for secure Online Reference Portals - also known as electronic reading rooms - for major licensing actions such as NFPA 805 amendments, License Renewal applications, and COLAs.

Certrec has been providing online reference portals/electronic 
reading rooms that meet NRC's requirements since 2009.


Certrec's Electronic Reading Rooms (ERR) are simple to deploy and can be made available within 24 hours. Clients access the ERR through a straightforward web interface that supports all major browsers, smart phones, and smart pads.

NRC's access is tightly controlled to ensure their access is limited to reading and does not allow NRC users to take possession of documents at any point.
  • → Eliminates the need to maintain one or more remote hard copy reference rooms
  • → Reduced costs related to preparation and transmittal of hard copy or electronic information to the NRC
  • → Potentially reduces NRC review fees, travel costs, and review time
  • → Reduces costs associated with transmittal of information to outside entities
  • → Provides efficiency improvements by managing document access through a common web platform


IT SECURITY WITHOUT ENGAGING IT

Electronic Reading Rooms are hosted on Certrec's secure production IT infrastructure. Redundancy, bandwidth, and backup protection is ensured as part of the ERR Service. The web-based software is compatible with and functions well with essentially all operating systems and web browsers. NRC personnel successfully utilize the Electronic Reading Room Service for a variety of projects demonstrating compatibility with their IT infrastructure.
