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.
13th Nuclear Plant Instrumentation, Control & Human-Machine Interface Technologies (NPIC&HMIT 2023)
Tuesday, July 18, 2023|1:00–2:45PM EDT|301C
The US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Sensors and Instrumentation (ASI) program focuses on research and development (R&D) of technologies that benefit the nuclear community by enhancing measurement capabilities and addressing critical I&C technology gaps in support of sustaining the existing reactor fleet, deployment of next generation advanced reactor designs, and assisting ongoing materials and fuels experiments. ASI enables this crosscutting research by investing in emerging technologies under development at universities and national laboratories, and by evaluating and elevating technology maturity through technology commercialization efforts with industry partners. The program is organized in three research areas: sensors for advanced reactors, sensors for irradiation experiments and sensors integration. Each area technical lead is a panel member. The fourth panel member represents the perspective of one of the program major stakeholders, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This panel discusses the outcome of research activities funded by ASI and their implication on the accelerated deployment of advanced reactor technologies.
