Barb, you've described the situation that the licensee faces perfectly:
"A licensee can grant anyone unescorted access, so long as the T&R
Official feels the employee is trustworthy and reliable, and
documents some (i.e., any) basis for that determination."
Whoever the licensee FEELS is trustworthy and reliable is OK. The
responsibility for identifying who is a
potential security threat lies squarely upon the licensee. But that's
where it was to begin with, and the NRC
provides no criteria for excluding anyone. Calling this guidance sets the
bar pretty low, even for the NRC.
It's better characterized as a warning to the licensee: "You're in this on
your own, and if something bad happens
it's your fault, not ours!"
Of course licensees were never the intended audience for the T&R
requirements, but rather congress.
