Allegations

The NRC's Allegation Program deals with concerns associated with NRC requirements and wrongdoing by individuals or organizations who are --

  • Licensed by the NRC
  • Applicants for licenses
  • Licensee contractors or vendors
  • Employees of any of the above

The Allegation Program does not evaluate issues concerning the conduct of NRC employees or NRC contractors which come under the purview of the NRC's Office of the Inspector General.

A brief summary of the allegation program can be found in our brochure on Reporting Safety Concerns to the NRC (NUREG/BR-0240). For additional information, see our Backgrounder on Allegation Process and NRC staff guidance in Management Directive 8.8, "Management of Allegations."

For more information on our Allegation program, see the following:
