On March 05, 2014 (79 FR 12531), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a federal register requesting comments on its draft NUREG–1614, Volume 6, “U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Strategic Plan, Fiscal Years 2014–2018.” The draft Strategic Plan provides the agency’s long-term, results focused goals and objectives and its proposed strategies for achieving them for the planning period. The NRC encourages and welcomes public comments that can help it respond to challenges and shape its strategic direction over the next four years, particularly comments on the plan’s goals, objectives, and strategies. Examples include processing license applications involving new technologies, such as small modular reactors and continued implementation of enhancements to improve reactor safety based on insights from the 2011 nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi. The continued globalization of nuclear technology and the nuclear supply chain is another factor that will affect the NRC, driving the need for increased international engagement on the safe and secure use of radioactive material and the need for new oversight approaches to ensure that foreign components used in U.S. nuclear facilities are in compliance with NRC requirements. Please submit comments by April 4, 2014. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is only able to ensure consideration of comments received on or before this date.
