Implementing Lessons Learned from Fukushima: Public Meetings/Presentations

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has a long-standing practice of conducting its regulatory responsibilities in an open manner, and keeping the public informed of the agency's regulatory, licensing, and oversight activities. For that reason, the NRC is committed to informing the public about its Lessons Learned from Fukushima. For general information about the available opportunities for public involvement in NRC activities, see Public Meetings and Involvement, Hearing Opportunities and License Applications, and NUREG/BR-0215, "Public Involvement in the Regulatory Process." For more specific information about public meetings and presentations that the NRC staff has conducted to discuss topics related to the Japan nuclear accident, see the following chronological listings on this page:
