T6  The Role of Technical Scientific Support Organizations within Nuclear Regulatory Authorities

This session will highlight the role of technical support organizations (TSO’s) in supporting rulemaking and other regulatory actions taken by nuclear regulatory authorities.  Both the NRC and international TSO organizations will present examples of research projects that support regulatory decisionmaking.  There will also be a discussion of how technical work is translated into regulatory actions.  The session will illustrate the detailed level of technical work that is required to support regulatory activities.
