The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) affords the public opportunities to comment on proposed rules and policies, licensing actions, and draft technical documents. 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.

For tips on how to submit effective comments, go to regulations.gov, search by Docket ID number for the document you would like to comment on, and select "Comment Now," then select "View Commenter's Checklist (PDF)."
