W16 Regional Session - Current Topics Involving the NRC's Inspection and Oversight Programs

The purpose of this session is to align industry stakeholders on contemporary topics involving the NRC's inspection and oversight programs. Topics will include areas of common interest to industry stakeholders from the four regional offices. The session will include allotted time for each of the four regional participants to present remarks that include their perspectives on the current state of the NRC's oversight programs. Industry representatives will then have the opportunity to direct questions to the four panel members.

Learning objectives include an increased awareness of the current technical and regulatory challenges facing the regions, as well as a more thorough understanding of how each region is leveraging existing NRC initiatives (e.g., EDO focus areas, objectives and key results) to address these challenges.

Focus areas include, but are not limited to, (1) postpandemic inspection and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) lessons learned, (2) regional perspectives on changes to the NRC's oversight and inspection programs, (3) regional use of the Be RiskSMART framework, innovation, and the increased use of technology, and (4) staffing and knowledge management.

Takeaway messages will include broad regional alignment on the EDO's vision to become a modern, risk-informed regulator that achieves mission excellence in a diverse, inclusive, and innovative environment with a highly skilled, adaptable, and engaged workforce.
