Building and maintaining public trust is critical to carrying out NRC's mission. To be an effective steward for nuclear safety, the public must have confidence in NRC's regulatory actions. One of the ways that NRC earns the public's trust is by disseminating information so that the public can participate effectively in the regulatory process and can make informed decisions about agency activities.
The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) provides the public and the news media with clear, accurate, and complete information about our programs, policy decisions, and activities, primarily by issuing news releases and by distributing Commission speeches, fact sheets, and brochures. The office follows news coverage of the agency and responds to media and public inquiries. If you have questions or comments about the NRC, nuclear safety, or related topics, please Contact a Public Affairs Officer.
Media Resources - links to current and past news releases and other news-related resources, such as Commission speeches, fact sheets, and brochures.
