W15  Optimizing the Reactor Oversight Process

Self-assessment and continuous improvement are key aspects of the NRC's ROP. The NRC is currently assessing suggestions provided by both internal and external stakeholders to improve the effectiveness of the ROP. The NRC wants to ensure this effort is focused on those issues most important to safety and that regulatory oversight activities 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.
