Document Reproduction Information

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Public Document Room (PDR) contractor, Aitheras, will provide document reproduction services to the public for PDR documents at the rates listed below. Relevant sales tax and postage will be added.

The librarians in the PDR will research the information and prepare the order for Aitheras. Reproduction orders are collected from the PDR and prepared by Aitheras staff. Turnaround times begin once Aitheras picks up the order. Generally on mornings when an order is prepared, orders received by the PDR librarians after collection by Aitheras will be processed on the next available day. Please contact the librarians in the PDR if you have questions about ordering documents.

Aitheras may be contacted directly with any questions at 800-592-5436 or via their contact page.  They can provide the total amount for the requested service on the customer invoice, since the cost may be more than the prices quoted below.

There is a $25 minimum charge on all copy orders.
