NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION: NRC proposes annual fees for FY 2018

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission released the following information Jan. 25.

The  Nuclear Regulatory Commission is seeking public comment on proposed  changes to its regulations for the fees it will charge applicants and  licensees for fiscal year 2018.

The fees in the proposed rule,  published today in the Federal Register, would recover $826.7 million,  approximately 90 percent of the agency’s budget, as required by the  Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, as amended. About $289.4  million of the fees would recover the cost of specific services to  identifiable applicants and licensees under 10 CFR Part 170. The  remaining $537.3 million would be billed as annual fees under 10 CFR  Part 171.

The FY 2018 proposed fee rule is based on the FY 2018  Congressional Budget Justification, as adjusted. The final rule will be  based on the NRC’s actual appropriation, and the agency will update the  final fee schedule as appropriate.

The Federal Register notice  includes detailed instructions on how to submit written comments on the  proposed fee rule. Comments will be accepted through Feb. 26.
