Technical Letter Reports
Technical Letter Reports (TLRs) are reports issued by the NRC’s Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research to address regulatory considerations for a relevant technical area. These reports identify and analyze regulatory gaps, introduce new tools to assist in regulatory assessments, deliver overviews of new technologies and methods, or provide case studies for their potential application. TLRs are neither regulation nor guidance and should not be treated as such. The primary purpose of TLRs is to serve as sources of information for NRC staff and external stakeholders.
