The NRC's Interactions with States
The NRC has many policies and programs that focus on States' interactions. Through activities such as the ones described in this brochure and related efforts, the NRC strives to:
- Keep States informed on topics of mutual interest.
- Provide States with opportunities to participate in the NRC's regulatory processes.
- Provide assistance to State activities when appropriate.
- Maintain oversight when States assume authority from the NRC for specific activities.
The NRC has dedicated staff members in its various offices who routinely interact with their State counterparts through meetings, conferences, and outreach activities. They also conduct many State-specific communications using a variety of avenues. In addition, NRC staff members maintain contact with many State organizations and groups. Through these interactions, the NRC staff works to keep the agency and the States informed of respective activities, views, and interests to support ongoing cooperation.
