  Regulating Commercial Nuclear Power Plant Operators  
(Lectures/Talks)

Mark S. Haire, Branch Chief, Nuclear Regulatory Commission Region IV

Operating commercial nuclear power plants, with their complex engineered operating and safety systems, requires thorough training and preparation and a keen understanding of the system interrelationships, operating characteristics, and design limits.

Because the technology can be so unforgiving, as exemplified by the accidents at Three Mile Island (1979), Chernobyl (1985), and Fukushima (2011), training and licensing of these operators must be overseen by an unforgiving regulator. This presentation will explore the challenges associated with licensing and regulating nuclear plant operators in the 21st century.


Location: Nedderman Hall Rady Room (6th Floor)
