Security Rulemaking for Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations

Among its regulatory initiatives related to Domestic Safeguards, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is in the process of proposing a rulemaking that would revise the agency’s security requirements for the storage of spent nuclear fuel at an independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) and the storage of spent nuclear fuel or high-level radioactive waste or both at a monitored retrievable storage installation (MRS). This proposed rulemaking would also make conforming changes to the licensing requirements for security plans and programs at ISFSIs and MRSs. For additional information about this rulemaking and related opportunities for public involvement, please see Proposed Security Rulemaking for Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installations.
