Enhancing Participation in NRC Public Meetings
Document Number: 2016-20946
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-08-31
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
To further clarify and enhance participation in public meetings conducted by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the NRC is proposing to revise its public meeting policy. The revised policy statement redefines the three categories of public meetings and identifies the level of public participation offered at each type of meeting. The revised policy statement also clarifies notification expectations for meetings that include physical presence in the meeting room and meetings that rely solely on remote access technology such as a teleconferencing. The proposed revisions will improve the consistency of the NRC's public meetings and help participants better prepare for NRC meetings.
