U.S. Response to the Fukushima Nuclear Accident

Thursday, May 26, 2011 — 2 PM

Bill Borchardt, Gal Luft.

In response to the recent accident at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) launched a review of American nuclear power plant safety. An NRC task force will conduct short- and long-term analyses of the lessons that can be learned from the situation in Japan. This systematic review will determine if there are any changes that should be made to the NRC’s programs and regulations to ensure protection of public health and safety. Executive Director for Operations Borchardt will report on the approach for this NRC review.
