In addition, the ACRS may be requested to provide advice on radiation protection, radioactive waste management and earth sciences in the agency’s licensing reviews for fuel fabrication and enrichment facilities, and for waste disposal facilities. The ACRS also has some involvement in security matters related to the integration of safety and security of commercial reactors. See NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/aboutnrc/ regulatory/advisory/acrs.html for additional information about ACRS. Criteria used to evaluate candidates include education and experience, demonstrated skills in nuclear reactor safety matters, the ability to solve complex technical problems, and the ability to work collegially on a board, panel, or committee.

Safeguards

AGENCY: U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Request for r[eacute]sum[eacute]s.

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) seeks qualified 
candidates for the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS). 
Submit r[eacute]sum[eacute]s to Ms. Brandi Hamilton, ACRS, Mail Stop

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ACRS is a part-time advisory group, 
which is statutorily mandated by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended. ACRS provides independent expert advice on matters related to 
the safety of existing and proposed nuclear power plants and on the 
adequacy of proposed reactor safety standards. Of primary importance 
are the safety issues associated with the operation of 104 commercial 
nuclear power plants in the United States and regulatory initiatives, 
including risk-informed and performance-based regulations, license 
renewal, power uprates, and the use of mixed oxide and high burnup 
fuels. An increased emphasis is being given to safety issues associated 
with new reactor designs and technologies, including passive system 
reliability and thermal hydraulic phenomena, use of digital 
instrumentation and control, international codes and standards used in 
multinational design certifications, materials and structural 
engineering, nuclear analysis and reactor core performance, and nuclear 
materials and radiation protection. In addition, the ACRS may be 
requested to provide advice on radiation protection, radioactive waste 
management and earth sciences in the agency's licensing reviews for 
fuel fabrication and enrichment facilities, and for waste disposal 
facilities.
    The ACRS also has some involvement in security matters related to 
the integration of safety and security of commercial reactors. See NRC

nuclear reactor safety matters, the ability to solve complex technical 
problems, and the ability to work collegially on a board, panel, or
