United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Design Inspection Review

In February 2017, a working group consisting of experienced supervisors and inspectors was formed by the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation to conduct an assessment of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) engineering inspections that verify the adequacy of facility design, operations, and testing and make recommendations on improving both the effectiveness and efficiency of the suite of engineering inspections within the ROP. The working group was tasked with the review of NRC engineering inspection procedures (IPs) to determine if gaps and/or overlaps of inspection areas exist. The documents provided on this webpage contains information being used to support this review effort.
