Wednesday, April 26, 2017 {ml-event-to} Thursday, April 27, 2017

Join us in Washington, D.C., as acknowledged experts in nuclear regulation, attorney and author Alex Polonsky, and attorney Thomas Poindexter and Ray Kuyler present an overview of nuclear regulation. The course will cover the history and background necessary to understand the U.S. regulatory process.

It will bring attendees up to date on the latest regulatory changes that have transformed the way commercial nuclear reactors are licensed for construction, approved for siting, and regulated during construction and operation. The course also will cover NRC regulatory requirements and guidance documents and will examine NRC’s role in the nuclear fuel cycle through waste disposal. Each attendee will receive a copy of Fundamentals of Nuclear Regulation in the United States written by Alex Polonsky and retired Morgan Lewis partner and former NRC regional counsel, Jay M. Gutierrez.
