NRC to meet with stakeholders July 26

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will meet Tuesday, July 26, with numerous invited stakeholders to hear their views on the NRC’s regulatory activities.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and last through the day in the NRC Auditorium at 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Md. Chairman Stephen Burns and Commissioners Kristine Svinicki and Jeff Baran will hear perspectives on any topic the participants raise. Participants were specifically informed that they could present on any topic of interest to them; however, the Commission expects the discussion topics will likely include such matters as the efficiency and effectiveness of NRC regulatory programs, effectiveness of public engagement, and the use of risk insights in regulations and decision- making. Participants in the meeting will include states, Native American tribes, public interest groups, nuclear power plant operators, new reactor vendors, and former NRC Commissioners.

 

“The unique format of this meeting will provide the Commission a rare and valuable opportunity to meet at the same time with a diverse set of participants on a potentially broad array of topics,” said Chairman Burns. “I am looking forward to hearing perspectives on the agency from our invitees and I feel confident that the meeting will inform the NRC’s ongoing efforts to take a fresh look at how it does business.”

The meeting will be open to public observation and will be webcast. Those planning to attend should arrive at least 30 minutes early to allow time for security screening. A detailed agenda and presentation slides will be available in advance on the Commission’s meeting transcript page. Broadcast media outlets interested in attending should contact the Office of Public Affairs by noon on Monday, July 25.
