NRC seeks comments on new fee schedule for FY 2024
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is asking for feedback on proposed changes to the annual, licensing, inspection, and special projects fees for fiscal year 2024.
The proposed fee rule, published February 20 in the Federal Register, is based on the FY 2024 Congressional Budget Justification as a full-year appropriation, but it has not yet been enacted. The final rule will be based on the NRC’s actual appropriation, and the agency will update the final fee schedule as appropriate.

The US universities have been a cornerstone of nuclear science and engineering research and education since the beginning. These programs serve as hotbeds for idea creation as well as educating the next generation of scientists and engineers and performing fundamental research. The US Department of Energy – Office of Nuclear Energy supports the programs through student and faculty support as well as limited infrastructure funding. This panel will discuss existing R&D capability gaps and present potential solutions that could be realized by significantly increasing infrastructure funding to US university NS&E programs.
