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 fatigue state of nuclear power operators is of vital importance to the safe operation of a nuclear power plant. With the development of the digital manipulation interface in recent years, the fatigue type and degree of operators have undergone changes. The interface of the nuclear power monitoring task is simulated in this experiment, and multiple fatigue detection modes are used to measure the fatigue state of operators. Results show that the subjective fatigue reporting method and PERCLOS P80 can reflect the change of fatigue state. The correlation between task performance and fatigue is not remarkable, and the sensitivity of the electrocardiographic heart rate variability indicator is poor. The accuracy also remains to be further verified.
