Abstract

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or agency) is an independent agency established by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974 that began operations in 1975 as a successor to the Atomic Energy Commission. The agency's mission is to license and regulate the Nation's civilian use of radioactive materials to protect public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment. This strategic plan, covering the period 2014–2018, describes how the NRC plans to achieve its two strategic goals: (1) to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials and (2) to ensure the secure use of radioactive materials. The plan provides an overview of the NRC's responsibilities, describes how stakeholders participated in plan development, summarizes key challenges the agency will face during the planning period, and lays out the objectives, strategies, and key activities that will be used to achieve the agency's goals.
