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 NRC’s mission is to license and regulate the Nation’s civilian use of radioactive materials; to provide reasonable assurance of adequate protection of public health and safety; to promote the common defense and security; and to protect the environment. This strategic plan, covering the period Fiscal Years 2022–2026, provides the blueprint for the agency to plan, implement and monitor the work needed to achieve its three strategic goals: (1) ensure the safe and secure use of radioactive materials, (2) continue to foster a healthy organization, and (3) inspire stakeholder confidence in the NRC. The strategic plan also provides an overview of the NRC’s responsibilities and lays out how the NRC uses data and evidence to inform decisionmaking to accomplish objectives and strategies to achieve the agency’s strategic goals.
