General Licensing

In the over 30 years since the formation of the company, EXCEL has become recognized as the premier supplier of licensing, regulatory compliance, and Technical Specifications (TS) services, and has extensive experience in successful negotiation regarding licensing and TS issues.  EXCEL’s corporate offices are strategically located near the NRC to facilitate the most effective and efficient support of NRC review and approval efforts of any licensing or regulatory issues.

EXCEL’s professionals have experience in providing all facets of TS and Licensing services.  EXCEL has had extensive involvement with numerous nuclear utilities specifically in either improving or amending the TSs to support continued operation. EXCEL has detailed knowledge of Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) and Boiling Water Reactor (BWR), Standard TS, Custom TS, Improved Standard Technical Specification (ISTS), regulations, design and licensing bases, and safety analyses.  EXCEL believes that this combination of experience and knowledge ensures the development of the best quality product in a cost-effective manner and in accordance with the highest standards of professional excellence.

EXCEL’s professionals have extensive on-site experience at both PWR utilities and BWR utilities in the development of license amendment requests including Notice of Enforcement Discretion (NOED), Emergency TS Changes, Licensee Event Reports (LERs), No Significant Hazard Considerations (NSHCs) and associated technical justifications.  EXCEL has a long history of working on UFSAR projects for operating plants and has been extensively involved in supporting UFSAR validation programs in response to the letters issued by the NRC regarding 10 CFR 50.54f.  This experience with other operating PWRs and BWRs provides a nuclear utility with a unique resource for TS activities.
