TH28  Enhancing the NRC's Engineering Inspection Program

Recently, the NRC, in coordination with many external stakeholders, has been assessing ways of transforming its oversight of licensee’s engineering programs. The overall objective of this initiative is to improve regulatory effectiveness by ensuring inspections are focused on issues most important to safety, and to ensure that these inspections are executed efficiently, optimizing both NRC and licensee resources. This session will provide information on the status and next steps of the NRC’s efforts in this area and will provide external panelists with an opportunity to share their perspectives on this important initiative.
