Request Documents through the FOIA
NRC documents may also be obtained through our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act Request process. We recommend that you visit the NRC Library or contact our Public Document Room (PDR) first to determine if the information you are seeking is already publicly available. This approach is frequently more convenient and less costly than submitting a FOIA request.
