- Facility has inspection by a Radiation Protection Services health inspector.

- If sufficient corrective action is not submitted, facility will receive a document called a “Notice to Impose Civil Penalties”
- Facility has 20 days to request a hearing (achieve a settlement that the non-compliances will be fixed and pay a fine, often a reduced amount from the one listed in the Notice to Impose document).
