Combine static content web pages into downloadable documents

I suggest that the number of web pages could be reduced significantly by combining static information content (i.e. information that changes infrequently) from several web pages into fewer downloadable “reference” documents. These documents would have a table of contents, follow the general style of reference documents, and be available in different formats (PDF, eBook, etc.) They could then be ported by the user to... more »

docket numbers in datasets for power reactors and test reactors

The format of the docket numbers entered in the power reactors dataset and test and research reactors dataset is different, and neither format is consistent with the NRC ADAMS search tool which prescribes the format to be used for a search. It would be helpful that the format of the docket numbers be the same in both datasets and ideally, the format of the docket numbers would be in the same format as that required when... more »

Reject the relicensing of the Duane Arnold Nuclear Power Plant

To Whom It May Concern:
I tried to send the following email and the NRC refused to accept the email.

This is not open government.

Use a crowdsourcing tool for the internal NRC suggestion program

I suggest that the NRC consider the use of an on-line brainstorming tool like IdeaScale or other similar tools to replace or augment the current approaches for soliciting employee suggestions. Using the "wisdom of crowds" to refine the suggestions through an on-line discussion would probably result in better ideas and more participation in the program. Pre-set categories aligned with NRC product lines (rulemaking, licensing,... more »

Other OpenGov Ideas & Information Resources

Rather than post each of my "OpenGov" Ideas at 27 different websites, I have posted them at the GSA's website (since they are in the forefront of the OpenGov initiative). So, by this notice, the members of the OpenGov Team for this agency have been informed of those ideas. (At least, now, you can't say you were unaware of them.)

Provide New Cert Designs w/ Effective Reliability Assurance Plan

Responding to Three Mile Island (TMI), NRC developed 10 CFR Part 52, the ‘Combined License’ (COL) process nearly thirty years ago. The COL’s Quality Assurance Program (QAP) requires that certified plant designs have a ‘Reliability Assurance Program’ (RAP) to assure Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA)-assumed reliability.

Unfortunately, Reg Guide 1.206 (NUREG-0800) Standard Review Plan (SRP) Section 17.4 guidance remains... more »

Provide vision into NRC regulatory costs

NRC is primarily funded by fees from current licensing and certification projects. I am interested in obtaining a view into the regulatory process to determine if there are areas where a disproportionate amount of time is spent while producing only a small (or negligible) safety improvements. Is it possible to invent a new tool that would allow decision makers and the public to figure out where the majority of regulator's... more »

Making licensing information available online

[Submitted by a member of the public through Regulations.gov]

We welcome this opportunity to provide comments regarding which data sets the NRC could most usefully place online. I discussed this issue more extensively in a law review article entitled "Spotlight on Safety at Nuclear Power Plants: The View from Oyster Creek," 26 Pace Environmental Law Review 365 (2009), which may be found at:

Decommissioning Fund information

[Submitted by a member of the public through Regulations.gov]

The NRC should publish information on the current status of all decommissioning funds for operating nuclear power plants. This data set should be kept up-to-date as new information becomes available. Having such information readily accessible is necessary in light of recent revelations that many nuclear power plants across the country do not have sufficient... more »
