Introduction

This report to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) presents the findings and recommendations that emerged from an assessment conducted from March 2000 through March 2001 by the NRC's Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS).

In conducting this assessment, the ACRS sought to fulfill the following objectives:

  • Assess the ongoing and planned reactor safety research being carried out by the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES).

  • Recommend additional research that will be needed to promote the efficient and effective execution of the agency's mission in the future.

The attentions of the report focuses on the research addressing issues of power reactor safety. Research dealing with the permanent disposal of radioactive waste in geological repositories will be discussed separately in a report by the NRC's Advisory Committee on Nuclear Waste (ACNW).
