IHS is your source for US NRC standards and publications.
The NRC's regulatory activities are focused on reactor safety oversight and reactor license renewal of existing plants, materials safety oversight and materials licensing for a variety of purposes, and waste management of both high-level waste and low-level waste. In addition, the NRC is preparing to evaluate new applications for nuclear plants. Several utilities have submitted applications for licenses to build new power reactors. See our nuclear materials, nuclear reactors, nuclear security, and radioactive waste pages for more information on NRC's current regulatory activities.
