Introduction

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which is empowered to protect public health and safety as it regulates the various commercial and institutional uses of nuclear energy, has redesigned its Web site (www.nrc.gov) to provide a consistent, easy-to-understand presentation of information about the agency and its activities.

The redesigned Web site has two major objectives:

Increase Public Confidence by providing information that:

  • Enhances the ability of stakeholders to participate effectively in the regulatory process. Examples include public meeting notices, documents for comment, rulemaking information, enforcement actions, reportable events, and much more.

  • Broadens the public's understanding of NRC's mission, goals and performance. Examples include information about the Commission's activities, the agency's strategic and performance plans, its organization and functions, and educational materials about nuclear topics.

Make Doing Business with the NRC Easier by:

  • Enhancing access to site information through an improved search engine, consistent page design, expanded site topic indices, standardized navigational capabilities, and improved access for users with disabilities.

  • Making tools available for conducting business electronically at www.nrc.gov. For instance, the site permits secure electronic transmittal of documents, lists job vacancy announcements, procurement plans for prospective contractors, licensing information for applicants, and NRC forms for submitting information.
