NRC’s Inspector General issues report
Overall findings of a survey of Nuclear Regulatory Commission personnel indicate that while the NRC maintains a few strengths compared to external benchmarks, results have declined since 2015 in a number of areas, according to a recent report from the NRC’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
The survey was conducted in February 2020 by Willis Towers Watson, a global risk-management, insurance brokerage, and advisory firm that has partnered with the OIG for more than 20 years to assess the NRC’s safety culture and climate, as well as other aspects of employee experience.

Two scoping test stands have been designed, built and installed at GA Technologies to perform single effect type testing to investigate specific thermomechanical and thermal-hydraulic data needs of typical solid breeder blanket designs. An initial test has been completed successfully yielding important information on the stability of Li2O breeder material at typical fusion reactor environmental conditions. Assembly of the second test rig and a pre-testing checkout of the equipment has been completed.
