For general information, see the How We Regulate page.


The Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has overall responsibility for NRC's reactor program. NRC's Regional Offices (Region I - Northeast, Region II - Southeast, Region III - Midwest, and Region IV - West/Southwest) implement this program in the states for which they are responsible. Reactor regulation is also supported by a Nuclear Reactor Safety Research program and by independent advice from the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards.
