This report fulfills the requirements of Section 170D.e of the Atomic Energy Act (AEA) of 1954 (42 U.S.C. §2210d(e)), as amended, which states, "[n]ot less often than once each year, the Commission shall submit to the Committee on Environment and Public Works of the Senate and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives a report, in classified form and unclassified form, that describes the results of each security response evaluation conducted and any relevant corrective action taken by a licensee during the previous year." Additionally, Section 170D.a of the AEA of 1954 (42 U.S.C. §2210d(a)) grants the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) the authority to determine which licensed facilities must undergo these security evaluations. Due to the nature, form, and quantity of nuclear material, the NRC is reporting the security response evaluation results for the Nation's fleet of operating commercial nuclear power plants (NPPs) and Category I (CAT I) fuel cycle facilities. To aid in understanding how the NRC regulates, the NRC is also providing a description of relevant security programs, including: the Reactor Oversight Process, the Security Baseline Inspection Program for NPPs, a force-on-force evaluation description, and the CAT I Fuel Cycle Facilities Security Oversight Program. This report also includes a comprehensive overview of the combined results of these security programs for calendar year calendar year 2019.
