The United States (U.S.) Nuclear Regulatory Commission has updated the 2001 U.S. National Report for the Convention on Nuclear Safety and will submit this report for peer review at the third Review Meeting of the Convention at the International Atomic Energy Agency in April 2005. The scope of this report is limited to the safety of land-based commercial nuclear power plants. The report demonstrates how the U.S. Government meets the main objective of the Convention — to achieve and maintain a high level of nuclear safety worldwide by enhancing national measures and international cooperation. It also shows how the U.S. Government meets the obligations of each of the articles established by the Convention. Specifically, those articles address the safety of existing nuclear installations, the legislative and regulatory framework, the regulatory body, responsibility of the licensee, priority to safety, financial and human resources, human factors, quality assurance, assessment and verification of safety, radiation protection, emergency preparedness, siting, design, construction, and operation.
