Research and Test Reactors Sub-Arena

Research and test reactors comprise one of four sub-arenas that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) identified in considering which areas of the reactor safety arena to target for greater use of risk information.

The staff will be conducting a review of NUREG-2150, “A Proposed Risk Management Framework,” that will consider how modifications to the regulatory framework could be incorporated into important agency policy documents. As part of this review, the staff will seek stakeholder input on proposed options and recommendations. The proposed options and recommendations will be included in a paper to the Commission that will identify options and make recommendations.  Those options and recommendations may or may not be applicable to research and test reactors. Estimated completion of this review, including the Commission Paper, is August of 2013.
