The William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA) amended the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (AEA) to grant the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (Board or DNFSB) relief from certain limitations under the Government in the Sunshine Act (Sunshine Act). The Sunshine Act generally requires all Board meetings to be open to public observation unless certain exemptions apply. The NDAA added a provision to the AEA that permits the Board to hold nonpublic collaborative discussions without following the requirements of the Sunshine Act, so long as certain requirements are met. The Board is publishing this direct final rule to revise the Board's Sunshine Act regulations consistent with the new AEA provisions for nonpublic collaborative discussions.
