United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

W14  The Applicability and Use of Third-Party Information for Operating Reactors

Third parties frequently release new reports that relate to the NRC's mission (e.g., the Army Corps of Engineers revises flood level estimates, affecting several plants; the U.S. Geological Survey releases the results of new seismic measures).  This session will discuss how licensees and the NRC are expected to evaluate new, third-party information that could affect the safety of nuclear plants.  It will include discussions of which regulations and processes apply and how issues of third-party information have been handled in the past.  The discussion will represent both industry and NRC perspectives.

SESSION CHAIR:

Michael Markley, Branch Chief, Division of Operating Reactor Licensing, NRC/NRR
