United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Public Participation

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers public involvement in, and information about, our activities to be a cornerstone of strong, fair regulation of the nuclear industry. We recognize the public's interest in the proper regulation of nuclear activities and provide opportunities for citizens to be heard. For that reason, consistent with The NRC Approach to Open Government, the agency is committed to providing opportunities for the public to participate meaningfully in the NRC’s decisionmaking process.

Participation allows members of the public to contribute ideas and expertise so that their government can make policies with the benefit of information that is widely dispersed in society.
