Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Power Reactor Security Requirements
GAO-09-545R: Apr 10, 2009
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) new rule on power reactor security requirements. GAO found that (1) the final rule establishes and updates generically applicable security requirements similar to those imposed by NRC orders issued after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, adds several new requirements developed as a result of insights gained from implementation of the security orders, and updates NRC's security regulatory framework; and (2) the NRC complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
