Physical Security Rulemaking
On this page:
Alternative Physical Security Requirements for Advanced Reactors
NRC Docket NRC-2017-0227. Includes preliminary proposed rule language, schedule information and stakeholder comments.
The NRC proposes to amend its physical security requirements for small modular reactors and other advanced reactor technologies. This rulemaking would establish voluntary alternative physical security requirements commensurate with the potential consequences to public health and safety and the common defense and security. This rulemaking would provide regulatory stability, predictability, and clarity in the licensing process and minimize or eliminate uncertainty for applicants who might otherwise request exemptions from the regulations.
