It is equipped with integrated logic to validate the NEI guidelines for gaps in employment, developed reference requirements, and industry background types and is integrated with the PHQ to eliminate duplicate data entry.
Modernizing Access Authorization, Fitness for Duty, and In-Processing
The Access Request Module reduces administrative burden with a simple walkthrough for employees to request various types of access at one or many nuclear power plants within a fleet and works in tandem with the other Illuminate modules to provide the ability to request and process UA/UAA, In-Processing, OCA, and other specialized access types.
Request Approval and Routing
Streamline the approval and routing process by allowing any user within the nuclear company to request access for an individual. Requests will automatically be routed to the appropriate supervisor or approver to ensure that requests are approved by the appropriate personnel.

Dynamic Access Types
Provide unique access types with the ability to customize and add access types as needed.
Empower employees to request various types of access, including UA, UAA, OCA, and Safeguards, and easily see where they are badged and the access levels they have been granted, through the Employee Portal.
