W13 Backfitting and Forward Fitting

This session will provide perspectives from external stakeholders about the NRC’s backfitting and forward fitting policies. As the NRC focuses on updating its backfitting and forward fitting guidance with respect to recent policy making, this session will provide external stakeholder perspectives and challenges as they navigate through the backfit process. Topics will include backfitting, forward fitting, appeals, cost considerations, and stakeholder opportunities to provide input to various NRC decisions. This session will provide timely perspectives as the staff revises NUREG-1409, “Backfitting Guidelines.”
