NRC to hold public meeting on potential research and test reactor changes.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced on Wednesday that they would be holding a public meeting regarding regulatory changes for research and test reactors.

The meeting will be taking place on Oct. 7 in Brewster, Massachusetts, at the Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club, beginning at 1 p.m. and running until 5 p.m. During this meeting, members of the public will be able to ask questions and pose questions to NRC officials regarding the proposed changes to these nuclear reactors.

The NRC is aiming to improve efficiency and efficacy in their regulations in this area.

The regulation of research and test reactors falls under the NRC's Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, and its staff performs licensing, transition and decommissioning. Inspecting and decommissioning these reactors falls under the responsibility of the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards. Like commercial reactors, research and test reactors are required to have regulation levels of security systems at the facility and will go under regular inspections determining safety and operation standards.

The NRC states that this meeting will be available to remote attendees through a teleconference and a webcast. Additional details will be made available at the NRC's meetings notice page on their website.
