Nuclear Reactor License Renewal: NRC Generally Follows Documented Procedures, but Its Revisions to Environmental Review Guidance Have Not Been Timely
Frank Rusco (au)
Many U.S. commercial nuclear power reactors are reaching the end of their initial 40-year operating period. To continue operating, their owners must renew their licenses with the Nuclear Regulatory Comm. (NRC), the independent federal agency responsible for licensing and regulating nuclear reactors. NRC evaluates license renewal applications under two parallel reviews for safety and potential environmental impacts. NRCńˇ╗s license renewal process has received increasing public scrutiny due, in part, to the 2011 disaster at Japanńˇ╗s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. This report reviewed NRCńˇ╗s license renewal process for commercial nuclear power reactors. It examines (1) the scope of the license renewal process; (2) the extent to which NRC updates its safety and environmental review guidance; (3) the extent to which NRC follows its documented license renewal procedures; and (4) knowledgeable stakeholdersńˇ╗ views on the strengths and weaknesses in the license renewal process and any suggestions for improvements. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
