The Generic Issues Program addresses potential safety or security issues that do not clearly fit elsewhere at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The Regulatory Guidance and Generic Issues Branch in the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research manages this agency wide program. Mandated by Congress, the program has been in place since the 1970s. The staff describes the status of active Generic Issues in a semiannual report to Congress.
