Electronic Submittals Application
Over the past several months the NRC has notified our users that certain changes in Federal computer security regulation would compel us to change some of our information technology (IT) security tools and settings. One of those tools is the type of digital certificates used to assure the integrity of the information transactions between users and NRC processing systems.
The NRC is now prepared to issue its new digital certificate. If you are a user of any of the Electronic Submission System then now is the time to request and install your new certificate. The new certificate will be required to access either the Adjudicatory or Criminal History options by mid-November. General Form users will need the new certificate closer to the end of December but should act to install it now.
To request a new certificate please go to this link: Request a Certificate and select the option to which you wish access. The site will walk you through the process. After you complete the process the NRC system manager will review and approve your request and you’ll receive an e-mail with instruction on the steps necessary to install your certificate.
Please direct questions to the Help Desk at: 866-672-7640.
The electronic submittals systems are scheduled to undergo routine system maintenance on Monday evenings from 6:30pm until 9:30pm EST. The periods may be deferred or cancelled if they might interfere with filing deadlines for comment periods or adjudicatory proceedings.
NRC Packing Slip Wizard:
The Electronic Submittals application allows electronic transmission of information to the NRC pertaining to licensing actions, associated hearings, and other regulatory matters. The application ensures that information sent to the NRC via the Internet is secure and unaltered during transmission. For other communications with the NRC, see our Contact Us page.
The Electronic Submittals application operates 24 hours daily except when the application must be taken down for scheduled maintenance. System operators will post a notice on the Electronic Submittals home page whenever a scheduled outage is planned.

Electronic Submission Systems
The Electronic Submittals application supports three separate systems. Users may access their applicable system by selecting from among the following links:
Adjudicatory submissions – Used for filings made to the Commission or Atomic Safety and Licensing Board proceedings
Criminal History – The NRC has deployed a new Criminal History submissions application to support enhanced security requirements and improve information flow between submitters and the NRC. The new application will require installation of an Active X plug in to enable digital signing of submissions. Instructions on how to install it are available in the Criminal History Quick Start Guide. There is also a Criminal History Users' Guide available at this location: Criminal History Users' Guide. The fee, subject to periodic adjustment, is currently $26.00 per check requested.
General submissions – Used for transmitting reports or other electronic filings to the NRC. Licensees who wish to use electronic submissions to satisfy 10 CFR Part 26 reporting requirements (Fitness for Duty) should use the General submissions portal.
