NIA Event for Release of Report on NRC Fee Reform for Advanced Reactors
WASHINGTON – The Nuclear Innovation Alliance (NIA) is hosting a webinar at 12pm ET on Wednesday, May 19th about the release of a new report “Unlocking Advanced Nuclear Innovation: The Role of Fee Reform and Public Investment.” As multiple advanced reactor vendors enter the licensing process to build first-of-a-kind demonstration projects, issues with the NRC's current user fee cost recovery model could slow innovation and raise regulatory costs. Importantly, reliance on applicant fees limits the ability of the NRC to hire and train staff ahead of expected applications, reducing regulatory efficiency.
