T4 The Reactor Oversight Process at 20: A Look Forward

A  panel discussion focusing on how the Reactor Oversight Process (ROP) was developed and implemented, how it has evolved over the years, and where we see it further developing as the agency strives to be a more modern, risk-informed regulator.

The discussion will relate to successes and challenges during development and implementation, changes made in response to world events and program maturity, industry response to past changes and future proposals, public perception and concerns throughout the history of the ROP, how the NRC may adapt the regulatory framework as new technologies enter the mix, and where we anticipate the ROP developing as the agency implements comprehensive reviews of the ROP aimed at becoming a more modern, risk-informed regulator.
