A new submission option called 'In-Camera Submission' is available for users. This option allows users to restrict distribution of their submission to the Presiding Officer(s) of a selected proceeding. Further details are available in the ‘Online Help’ portion of the application.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations require the use of electronic submittals in the agency’s hearings, consistent with the requirements and specifications set forth in the Electronic filing rule . Exceptions to the rule allow paper filings or filings on disc storage media only in limited circumstances.
The Adjudicatory Submissions system is one of the NRC’s three existing electronic submission systems. This system is used for filings to the Commission or Atomic Safety and Licensing Board proceedings.
*Privacy Considerations: Unless excluded pursuant to an order of the Commission, an Atomic Safety and Licensing Board, or a Presiding Officer, documents submitted in adjudicatory proceedings will appear in the NRC's Electronic Hearing Docket, which is available to the public. Therefore, hearing participants should not include personal privacy information, such as social security numbers, in their filings unless such information is required by agency regulations [see, for example, paragraph (d)(1)(i) of 10 CFR 2.309] or other legal requirements.
(Note: The Adjudicatory Submissions system supports Internet Explorer v8.0 and below; Firefox v3.5 and below; Safari 3.0 and below and MACOS 10.4 and 10.5)
