T3  Process Enhancements for Topical Report Reviews

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC’s) topical report (TR) review process is undergoing substantive changes, including increased management oversight, enhanced communication with vendors and owners’ groups, revised prioritization schemes, and metrics that appropriately capture the varying priorities of TRs. As part of this effort, the staff continues to engage external stakeholders to seek input and feedback. The NRC recognizes the significance of TRs from the perspectives of both licensing efficiency and technology innovation and is taking steps to improve the effectiveness of reviews.
