TH29  Reactor Decommissioning Transition, 1 Year Later

Several power reactors in the United States are currently in the process of transitioning from an operating to a decommissioned status.  During the period since these reactors were declared to be in a transitioning status, many exemptions, amendments, and licensing actions to support the transitions were completed and lessons learned were documented.  This RIC session will examine the current state of the transitioning process for the U.S. nuclear power fleet by detailing the lessons learned from the completed actions, discussing the next process steps, and projecting the future challenges in the process.
