Preparedness Programs oversees 99 operating nuclear power plants through licensing, inspection, and regulatory actions. It also is responsible for licensing and oversight of new nuclear power plants. The Nuclear Materials and Waste Safety Program regulates activities associated with the production.

Gregory Jaczko’s recent book, “Confessions of a Rogue Nuclear Regulator,” reminded me of why the U.S. Navy has never lost a nuclear submarine to a nuclear reactor meltdown.

In short, the Naval Nuclear Power Propulsion Program was developed and regulated by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover/5. NRC Library. NRC releases several hundred documents to the public each work day.

The Web site contains information and the documents that are most pertinent to NRC regulatory activities. Many of the documents are in Basic References or Document Collections. The rest are available either from our record retrieval system, ADAMS.

The publication of this handbook is in accordance with the recommendations of the Risk Assessment Review Group Report (NUREG/CR) in which it was stated that the fault/event tree methodology both can and should be used more widely by the NRC.

It is hoped that this document will help to codify and systematize. It explains the regulatory program of the agency—licensing and enforcement, confirmatory research, and standards development. The NRC's role, as a regulator of the use of nuclear energy in the civilian sector, is to ensure that the construction and operation of nuclear facilities and the use of nuclear materials are carried out in a manner.

This means the American taxpayer only. This final chapter first sets out two premises of the report: (1) that regulation of ionizing radiation in medicine warrants as rigorous an analysis of the costs and benefits of such regulation as the data will permit, and (2) that states have the ability to regulate radiation effectively within their borders.

Next, the chapter lays out the committee's : Kate-Louise D.
