The NRC tested the modified activator oversight procedure during a 6 month pilot program at 13 plants at 9 sites throughout the nation, starting in June 1999. In this program, energies voluntarily collected performance sign information and reported it to the NRC, and the NRC evaluated and assessed the plants the plants utilizing the new oversight process. Based on lessons gained from the pilot, the NRC made modifications to the process before extending the oversight procedure to all commercial nuclear power plants in April 2000. The NRC team reported the outcomes of the pilot program to the Commission in SECY-00-049, "Results of the Revised Reactor Oversight Process Pilot Program"; the Commission authorized the staff's suggestion to apply the changed ROP for all plants in SRM for SECY-00-049.
