Fire-Related Inspection Manual Chapters
The fundamental task of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is to ensure that planned and existing licensed operations can be (and are being) conducted without undue risk to the public. Toward that end, the NRC staff regularly conducts inspections for the following purposes:
- Provide a basis for recommending issuance, denial, continuation, modification, or revocation of an NRC permit or license.
- Identify conditions within inspected areas that may adversely affect public safety, so that appropriate corrective action(s) can be taken.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the licensee's performance in general, as well as in each inspection program area.
- Assess the licensee's compliance with NRC regulations, licenses, and orders.
The following table lists the inspection manual chapters (IMCs) that the NRC has developed to guide these inspections in the area of fire protection. The complete collection of IMCs is available through the NRC Library.
