Toward that end, the NRC announces public comment opportunities in the Federal Register, here on the Documents for Comment page, and sometimes through press releases, and places all public comments into the NRC's Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) and into a docket for the action on regulations.gov.

The following types of documents are available for comment:
