Abstract

This report to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) presents the observations and recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) concerning the NRC Safety Research Program being carried out by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research. In its evaluation of the NRC research activities, the ACRS considered the programmatic justification for the research, as well as the technical approaches and progress of the work. The evaluation identifies research crucial to the NRC mission. The interdisciplinary effort of the State-of-the-Art Reactor Consequence Analyses Project is not addressed in this report. Early in the project, the ACRS provided reports on the technical approach of this activity.
