ANN ARBOR, Mich. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is proposing a $3,500 fine against the University of Michigan Radiation Safety Service after a routine materials inspection turned up security-related violations.

The federal agency says the inspection conducted between last June and September looked at the use of licensed materials for medical applications, research and development.

Violations were found on the school's Ann Arbor campus.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a release Friday that the university took "immediate corrective actions to restore compliance."

Details of the violations were not released.

The school's Radiation Safety Service website says it provides radiological safety training, professional guidance and technical support to implement an effective radiation safety program.
