Notices & Summaries

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) publishes information notices to provide information regarding safety, safeguards, or environmental issues. The notices bring significant, recently identified safety, security, or environmental information to the attention of licensees. NRC expects licensees to review the information for applicability to their facilities and consider appropriate actions to avoid similar problems.

Regulatory issue summaries (a new product) are used to (1) document NRC endorsement of the resolution of issues addressed by industry-sponsored initiatives, (2) solicit voluntary licensee participation in staff-sponsored pilot programs, (3) inform licensee of opportunities for regulatory relief, (4) announce staff technical or policy positions not previously communicated to industry or not broadly understood, and (5) address matters previously reserved for administrative letters.​
