Fire Protection Brochures Prepared by NRC Staff

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) provides guidance to licensees and applicants by issuing NUREG-series publications regarding regulatory decisions, research results, results of incident investigations, and other technical and administrative information. NUREG-series publications disseminate scientific, technical, and administrative information dealing with licensing and regulation of civilian nuclear facilities and materials. Publications in the NUREG series may neither state nor imply any regulatory requirements, since such requirements are stated only in laws, regulations, licenses (including technical specifications), or orders. In other words, the NRC staff may suggest a course of action in a NUREG-series publication, but the regulated community may use other approaches to satisfy the agency's regulatory requirements.

The following table lists the NUREG-series brochures that the NRC has issued regarding topics related to fire protection for licensed facilities and materials. These brochures provide general information about NRC programs, policies, and opportunities for public participation in the regulatory process. They also support regulatory and licensing decisions, and include guidance for meeting NRC requirements. Related pages provide access to staff-prepared and contractor-prepared NUREG-series publications, as well as NUREG-series conference proceedings. The complete collection of NUREG-series publications is available through the NRC Library or the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).
