Open Petition for Rulemaking Dockets

The rulemaking petition process is the system by which any member of the public can request that the NRC develop, modify, or rescind a regulation.

This page lists the year when a particular petition for rulemaking (PRM) was docketed, the Docket ID, the PRM docket number, and the title of all open petitions.

This page also provides links to the Regulations.gov site. This government-wide, online database includes the NRC's public dockets related to PRMs. The dockets include publicly available documents such as NRC-issued Federal Register notices, supporting documents, public comments, and other related documents. Select the docket number shown in the table to access a particular docket. Once you are in the docket, you may sign up to receive an e-mail notification when particular documents are placed in the docket. To subscribe: (1) navigate to the docket folder; (2) click the "E-mail Alert" link; and (3) enter your e-mail address and select how frequently you would like to receive e-mails (daily, weekly, or monthly).

If a document is open for public comment, you can submit comments electronically by clicking "Submit a Comment" on the Regulations.gov Search Results page and completing the Public Comment and Submission Form. For more information on Regulations.gov, see Help and Frequently Asked Questions.
