Risk-Informed Regulation Implementation Plan (RIRIP) (2000 to 2007)

In SECY-99-211 (the last update to the PRA Implementation Plan), the NRC staff advised the Commission of its intention to restructure the PRA Implementation Plan to more clearly describe the agency's risk-informed activities, provide links between those activities and the agency's Strategic Plan, and change the frequency of updates from quarterly to semi-annually.

Then, in a memorandum to the Commission, dated January 13, 2000, the staff provided a proposed outline of the revised plan and noted intention to change the title from the "PRA Implementation Plan" to the "Risk-Informed Regulation Implementation Plan" (RIRIP) to better characterize its nature and purpose. In addition, the memorandum noted that the RIRIP would have the following focuses:

  • Track the three principal arenas in the agency's Strategic Plan (Nuclear Reactor Safety, Nuclear Materials Safety, and Nuclear Waste Safety).

  • Provide clear objectives and links to the Commission's PRA Policy Statement and the agency's Strategic Plan.

  • Identify criteria for selecting and prioritizing the agency practices and policies that should be risk-informed, and provide guidelines for their implementation.

  • Identify significant programs associated with these efforts, and provide related major milestones, including plans for communicating information to the agency's stakeholders.
