NRC meets March 11 to discuss rulemaking efforts

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet with the public and industry representatives March 11 to discuss how the agency might improve public information on new or revised regulations. The staff will discuss efforts to develop recommendations for the Commission’s consideration.

The meeting will run from 1-5 p.m. on March 11 in room T2B3 of the NRC’s White Flint complex at 11555 Rockville Pike in Rockville, Md. NRC staff will describe its work in four areas of interest:

**Creating a single tool for the public to track rulemaking activities;

**Developing consistent rulemaking terms and definitions;

**Ensuring that the public has access to current rulemaking activity information;

**Revising the NRC website to reflect the items above.

The public will have multiple opportunities to ask questions and provide comments on the staff’s work and preliminary conclusions.

The meeting will include a teleconference and webinar. For the call-in number, webinar details, or more information on the issues to be discussed, please contact the NRC’s Tara Inverso at 301-415-1024, or via e-mail at tara.inverso@nrc.gov.
