Welcome To NRC Open Abbreviations & Acronyms Commission Meetings
We hope this guide will help you understand what is taking place during Commission meetings. NRC has five Commissioners, each of whom has an equal vote. The Chairman has added administrative responsibilities that include being spokesman for the Commission and chairing the meetings.
There is often considerable discussion during the meetings. The Commissioners ask questions of the staff and talk with one another as they deliberate on the issues before them. They frequently assume an advocacy or opposition role to stimulate conversation and their remarks do not necessarily reflect their official views.
For more information about the Commission and its work we invite you to visit the Public Document Room which is adjacent to the Commission Hearing Room, First Floor, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD.
