Welcome to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s 35th Annual Regulatory Information Conference. This conference remains the largest annual meeting hosted by the NRC with numerous participants from the United States and dozens of other countries. Every year we look forward to a busy and productive few days where participants from international bodies, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, industry and other stakeholders join with the NRC to discuss topics of interest in the nuclear field.
Accordingly, the technical sessions at this year’s conference address a broad range of topics relevant both domestically and internationally. The panels and speakers will aim to stimulate substantive discussions on emerging issues and inspire future innovation in the field. As always, we encourage your feedback at the end of the event so the NRC can continue to make the Regulatory Information Conference better each year.
My Commission colleagues and I look forward to sharing our perspectives on nuclear regulation with you. On the behalf of the Commission and the NRC staff, I thank you for taking the time to attend and wish you an engaging and enjoyable conference.
Christopher T. Hanson
