Feedback from nuclear sector to inform hearing on NRC licensing process
Leaders of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce last month sent letters to a variety of nuclear sector stakeholders requesting input in preparation for a June 14 hearing titled “Oversight of NRC: Ensuring Efficient and Predictable Nuclear Safety Regulation for a Prosperous America.” (The hearing will be livestreamed at https://energycommerce.house.gov/.)
“We invite you to submit to the committee information and recommendations to improve the licensing review and approval process, as well as the oversight of NRC licensees,” the lawmakers wrote. “We are interested in NRC activities involving the licensing and oversight of today’s operating reactors, as well as the siting, licensing, construction, and oversight of advanced nuclear reactor technologies.” The letter also noted the committee’s interest in “improving NRC efficiency, management of regulatory costs and fees, public health and safety, staff effectiveness and culture, collaboration with the Department of Energy, and international activities.”

The nuclear industry has been reinvigorated with advanced designs and developments that will cater to new users in space-missions, accelerator-based systems, used-fuel, desalination, and shipping, in addition to the existing power industry. This development of nuclear technologies in innovative applications has exposed new needs and gaps which need to be addressed to deliver robust products. This session will:
1. Increase awareness of the US Nuclear Data Program (USNDP);
2. Discuss emerging nuclear data needs to enable current innovations and inspire future ones;
3. Discuss ongoing projects relevant to the audience; and
4. Provide information on how the community can contribute.
