Nuclear Energy Institute Licensing Forum
August 22, 2017 - August 24, 2017
The 2017 Licensing Professional Forum is focused on providing a learning and networking experience for individuals who are new to the licensing/compliance function, along with a challenging exploration of current and evolving regulatory issues for experienced professionals. For the benefit of new practitioners, the first day will emphasize fundamentals on the NRC’s responsibilities and operations, deep dives into backfitting and the security/regulatory interface and keys to success in dealing with NRC inspectors and headquarters licensing staff. There will be plenty of time for small group discussions facilitated by subject matter experts at each table. For both new and more experienced practitioners, the second day will provide updates and forward-looking perspectives on key regulatory issues facing the industry. A rich exchange of questions and answers on each topic is planned, with participation by senior NRC staff management. On the final half-day, government affairs experts provide insights into regulatory reform and agency modernization efforts in an industry-only session.
