The Nuclear Regulatory Commission last week announced the publication of the 2020–2021 Information Digest, which describes the agency's mission, responsibilities, accomplishments, and activities and provides general information on nuclear-related topics. The digest is published annually and, beginning this year, will be available electronically only on the NRC’s website.

The complete 227-page document or individual sections, including a handy nine-page “NRC at a Glance” section, is available for download. An audiobook of the digest is also available at the site.

According to the NRC, “This new online edition, NUREG-1350, Volume 32, is a quick reference guide to the agency and industry in an easy-to-use format. The Digest has embedded hyperlinks for ready access to additional information on major topics. The NRC graphics, figures, maps, and data sets also will be available online.”
