Commercial Nuclear Power Regulation covers key aspects of the regulatory process that ensure commercial nuclear power plants are operated safely. The course provides background into the organization and responsibilities of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the basic operations of a commercial nuclear power plant. Two aspects of the regulatory process (the Reactor Oversight Process and the Enforcement Process) are then explored in detail. Several case studies provide an illustration of how the regulatory process is applied to actual commercial nuclear power plants. The objectives of the course are: 1. Understand the role of the NRC as a regulatory agency 2. Understand how the Reactor Oversight Process (ROP) monitors the day-to-day operation of a commercial nuclear power plant through the use of Performance Indicators and Inspections 3. Understand how the NRC utilizes the Enforcement Process to deter noncompliance with NRC requirements and encourage prompt identification and correction of violations of NRC requirements. 4. Gain insight into how the ROP and Enforcement Process are applied to actual commercial nuclear power plants.
