NRC Ethics

Welcome to the NRC Ethics Web site. Here you can find laws, regulations, and policies governing the conduct of NRC employees as well as financial disclosure forms and articles on ethics issues.

The fundamental ethical principles call upon Federal employees to place loyalty to the Constitution, our public laws, and ethical standards above private gain. Every NRC employee is responsible for knowing and understanding the Federal and NRC ethics rules.

Because some of these rules are complex and may require some analysis, NRC employees are encouraged to seek the advice of an ethics counselor before taking any action that may be covered by these rules.
