NRC Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Tribal Policy Statement and Tribal Protocol Manual

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards

The NRC is seeking comments on its' proposed Tribal Policy Statement and Tribal Protocol Manual. The proposed Tribal Policy Statement establishes principles to be followed by the NRC to foster effective government-to-government interactions with Indian Tribes and to encourage Tribal involvement in the areas over which the Commission has jurisdiction.

The NRC Tribal Protocol Manual is a reference tool intended to facilitate effective consultation and interactions between the NRC and Native American Tribes concerning activities within the scope of the NRC's jurisdiction.

In addition, there will be a Tribal Map demonstration that will provide boundaries of Federally-Recognized Tribal lands and will highlight a few examples of where transportation of spent nuclear fuel crosses Reservation borders. This mapping tool supports NRC regulations to provide advance notification of spent fuel and certain waste shipments that may be transported within or across Tribal reservations.
