The NRC is holding its 24th annual Regulatory Information Conference on March 13th through 15th, 2012, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Maryland. This is a unique forum for government, industry, international agencies, and other stakeholders who want to meet and discuss nuclear safety topics and significant regulatory activities.
The opening session features NRC Chairman Gregory B. Jaczko delivering the keynote remarks and a presentation by NRC’s Executive Director for Operations Bill Borchardt. Included throughout the conference are plenary sessions with Commissioners Kristine L. Svinicki, George Apostolakis, William D. Magwood, and William C. Ostendorff.
A special plenary session with Martin Virgilio, the Deputy Executive Director for Reactor and Preparedness Programs, and industry will be moderated by Eric Leeds, Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
There will also be several sessions addressing topics associated with the Fukushima Dai-ichi accident and NRC’s response to lessons learned as well as tours of the Headquarter’s Operation Center.
The conference is free and open to stakeholders, industry representatives and members of the public, but registration is required. Online registration is now open. Registration will be available on-site, however, we strongly encourage online registration prior to the February 28 closing date.
