U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations require each licensee that is authorized to possess special nuclear material (SNM) or obligated source material to prepare and submit, in computer-readable format, reports concerning SNM that it received, produced, possessed, transferred, consumed, disposed of, or lost. This NUREG contains instructions for preparing these forms.
