Assessment of Performance

NRC uses inspector findings together with objective performance indicators to assess the performance of nuclear facilities.

The assessment process allows the NRC to integrate various information sources relevant to licensee safety performance, make objective conclusions regarding their significance, take actions based on these conclusions in a predictable manner, and effectively communicate these results to the licensees and to the public.
