How is the p-adic norm calculated when using UNIVERSAL WITT VECTORS?

Is the p-adic norm calculated in the familiar way, in the sense that we look to the last digit to the right, and the prime number p associated with that last digit: norm = p to the negative-n?

Or is a more elaborate procedure required, reflecting that we're using universal rather than p-typical p-adic numbers?
