    Fukushima Daiichi: A Report by the American Nuclear Society Special Committee on Fukushima (March ). Key Findings. First and foremost, we have found no aspect of the Fukushima Daiichi accident to suggest that the level of safety of nuclear energy facilities in the U.S. is unacceptable. In response to a request from Congress, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Homeland Security sponsored a National Academies study to assess the safety and security risks of spent nuclear fuel stored in cooling pools and dry casks at commercial nuclear power plants.

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) is approaching the end of the scoping phase of a study on spent nuclear fuel cask responses to severe transportation accidents (i.e., the Package Performance Study (PPS)). The scoping phase will determine which issues and approaches are to be used for succeeding phases (including. 82 reviews from Nuclear Regulatory Commission employees about Nuclear Regulatory Commission culture, salaries, benefits, work-life balance, management, job security, and more/5(82).

The Risk Assessment Review Group was organized by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission on July 1,with four elements to its charter: clarify the achievements and limitations of WASH, the ''Rasmussen Report''; assess the peer comments thereon, and responses to those comments; study the present state of such risk assessment methodology; and recommend to the Commission how (and.

This report summarizes an assessment of the risks from severe accidents in five commercial nuclear power plants in the United States. These risks are measured in a number of ways, including: the estimated frequencies of core damage accidents from internally initiated accidents and externally.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is an independent agency of the United States government tasked with protecting public health and safety related to nuclear energy. Established by the Energy Reorganization Act ofthe NRC began operations on Janu as one of two successor agencies to the United States Atomic Energy functions include overseeing Headquarters: North Bethesda, Maryland.
