Document Number: 2010-335
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-01-12
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On November 6, 2009, (74 FR 57525) (ML093030375), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a draft policy statement on safety culture to include the unique aspects of nuclear safety and security, and to note the Commission's expectations that all NRC licensees and certificate holders establish and maintain a positive safety culture that protects public health and safety and the common defense and security when carrying out licensed activities. The comment period was scheduled to expire on February 4, 2010, which coincides with the final day of the first of three public workshops the NRC is conducting to solicit input relating to the development of the safety culture policy statement, including: (1) development of a common safety culture definition; and (2) development of high-level description/traits of areas important to safety culture. Based on comments from licensees that these workshops may stimulate additional comments on the final draft policy statement, the NRC has decided to extend the comment period on the draft policy statement from February 4, 2010, to March 1, 2010.
Implementation of Open Government Directive
Document Number: 2010-228
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-01-11
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In response to the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) December 8, 2009, Open Government Directive, which helps to implement the President's January 21, 2009, Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is requesting public comment to aid the NRC's determination of what data sets it might be appropriate to publish online and what transparency, public participation, and collaboration improvements it might include as it drafts its Open Government Plan. The December 8, 2009, Directive generally instructs Federal agencies to identify and publish online in an open format at least three high-value data sets by January 22, 2010, and an Open Government Plan by April 7, 2010. While the Open Government Directive, by its terms, does not strictly apply to independent agencies like the NRC, the President has stated that independent agencies should comply with it. Accordingly, the NRC, in line with its longstanding commitment to openness and transparency, will endeavor to comply with the Open Government Directive and meet its deadlines. As part of this effort, the NRC will seek to identify and publish high-value data sets and draft an Open Government Plan, and the NRC is now inviting public comment on these matters. In addition, if a draft Open Government Plan is developed sufficiently prior to the April 7, 2010, deadline to allow time for meaningful public comment on the draft, the draft will be posted on the NRC's forthcoming Open Government Web page. Comments on the draft Plan could then be submitted to the NRC via the Open Government Web page.
