Petition for Rulemaking Dockets
The rulemaking petition process is the system by which any member of the public can request that the NRC develop, modify, or rescind a regulation.
The following pages provide links to the Regulations.gov site . This government-wide, online database includes NRC's public dockets related to petitions for rulemaking. The dockets include publicly available documents such as NRC-issued Federal Register notices, supporting documents, public comments, and other related documents.

Once you are in the docket, you may sign up to receive an email notification when particular documents are placed in the docket.
