The NRC is developing preliminary work plans on the longer-term recommendations of the agency’s post-Fukushima task force, starting with a series of public meetings to obtain input from stakeholders.
The discussions follow close on the heels of three orders and a request for information the agency issued in March, raising concern in the industry that resources may be spread too thin. Compounding concern is the fact that some of the lower-priority recommendations have no clear nexus to the accident. The industry is urging the NRC to defer any significant action on these recommendations until work on the higher-priority items has been largely completed.
