Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards Charter Renewal

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of renewal of the charter of the advisory committee on 
reactor safeguards.


SUMMARY: The Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) was 
established by the Atomic Energy Act (AEA) of 1954, as amended. Its 
purpose is to provide advice to the Commission with regard to the 
hazards of proposed or existing reactor facilities, to review each 
application for a construction permit or operating license for certain 
facilities specified in the AEA, and such other duties as the 
Commission may request.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Russell E. Chazell, Office of the 
Secretary, NRC, Washington, DC 20555; telephone: (301) 415-7469 or at 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The AEA as amended by Public Law 100-456 
also specifies that the Defense Nuclear Safety Board may obtain the 
advice and recommendations of the ACRS.
    Membership on the Committee includes individuals experienced in 
reactor operations, management; probabilistic risk assessment; analysis 
of reactor accident phenomena; design of nuclear power plant 
structures, systems and components; materials science; and mechanical, 
civil, and electrical engineering.
    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has determined that renewal of 
the charter for the ACRS until December 2, 2022, is in the public 
interest in connection with the statutory responsibilities assigned to 
the ACRS. This action is being taken in accordance with the Federal 
Advisory Committee Act.

    Dated: December 2, 2020.
Russell E. Chazell,
Federal Advisory Committee Management Officer, Office of the Secretary.
