Availability Notice


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has compiled this list of abbreviations commonly used by the agency staff, the regulatory community, and the nuclear industry. To create this list, the NRC staff sought to identify abbreviations that are so commonly used that some staff may not first define the term before using it either in writing or in speaking. This list of abbreviations is descriptive rather than prescriptive. In other words, this NUREG does not recommend one abbreviation to the exclusion of others. Nor does this NUREG intend to capture every abbreviation ever used in an NRC document. The audience of this NUREG is the public, stakeholders, industry, and NRC employees. The goal of this NUREG is to improve communication with and within the NRC.
