The Nuclear Regulatory Commission licenses and regulates civilian use of nuclear energy to protect public health and safety and the environment. This is achieved by licensing persons and companies to build and operate nuclear reactors and other facilities and to own and use nuclear materials. The Commission makes rules and sets standards for these types of licenses. It also carefully inspects the activities of the persons and companies licensed to ensure that they do not violate the safety rules of the Commission.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(NRC) was established as an
independent regulatory agency under the
provisions of the Energy Reorganization
Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5801) and

Executive Order 11834 of January 15, 1975, effective January 19, 1975. Transferred to the Commission were all licensing and related regulatory functions formerly assigned to the Atomic Energy

Commission, which was established by the Atomic Energy Act of 1946 (60 Stat. 755), as amended by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.).

The Commission's major program components are the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards, and the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, which were created by the Energy Reorganization Act of 1974. Headquarters offices are located in suburban Maryland, and there are four regional offices.

The Commission ensures that the civilian uses of nuclear materials and facilities are conducted in a manner consistent with the public health and safety, environmental quality, national security, and the antitrust laws. The major share of the Commission's effort is focused on regulating the use of nuclear energy to generate electric power.

for making timely regulatory judgments and for anticipating problems of potential safety significance;

-developing and implementing rules and regulations that govern licensed nuclear activities;

-investigating nuclear incidents and allegations concerning any matter regulated by the NRC;

-enforcing NRC regulations and the conditions of NRC licenses;

- conducting public hearings on matters of nuclear and radiological safety, environmental concern, common defense and security, and antitrust matters;

-maintaining the NRC Incident Response Program, including the NRC Operations Center;

-collecting, analyzing, and disseminating information about the operational safety of commercial nuclear power reactors and certain nonreactor activities; and

---developing effective working relationships with the States regarding reactor operations and the regulation of nuclear material, including assurance that adequate regulatory programs are maintained by those States that exercise, by agreement with the Commission, regulatory control over certain nuclear materials in the State.

Activities
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission
fulfills its responsibilities through a
system of licensing and regulatory
activities that include:

-licensing the construction and operation of nuclear reactors and other nuclear facilities, such as nuclear fuel cycle facilities and nonpower test and research reactors, and overseeing their decommissioning;

- licensing the possession, use, processing, handling, and export of nuclear material;

-licensing the siting, design, construction, operation, and closure of low-level radioactive waste disposal sites under NRC jurisdiction and the construction, operation, and closure of the geologic repository for high-level radioactive waste;

-licensing the operators of nuclear power and nonpower test and research reactors;

-inspecting licensed facilities and activities;

-conducting the principal U.S. Government research program on lightwater reactor safety;

- conducting research to provide independent expertise and information
