Foreign Control of Plants on Agenda

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Comment | More

A June 19 public meeting is being held by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to seek comment on foreign ownership of nuclear power plants.

The NRC's meeting will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the agency's headquarters in Rockville, MD, or via a teleconference call for comments on issues related to foreign ownership, control and domination of commercial nuclear power plants.

Assessment of Regulations

Currently, the Atomic Energy Act and NRC regulations disqualify any applicant for a nuclear power plant operating license if the applicant is owned, controlled or dominated by a foreign national, a foreign corporation or a foreign government.

The NRC is holding a public meeting June 19 to discuss issues related to foreign ownership of nuclear power plants, which is not allowed under current regulations.

In March, the NRC directed its staff to prepare an assessment of foreign ownership issues and propose any changes. There are currently no specific changes under consideration. The staff's assessment and proposals are due to the commission by Dec. 31.

In the Federal Register, the staff requested public comment, with specific questions about the extent of indirect foreign ownership that should be allowed.

"In recent years, a number of licensing actions before the NRC have involved complex issues of foreign ownership, control and domination. This is likely due to the increased globalization of the electric power industry and complexity of corporate structures generally," a press release about the meeting stated.

To Attend

The meeting is intended to include representatives from the industry, licensees and interested groups. The public is invited to observe the meeting and will have an opportunity to communicate with the NRC after the business portion.

Interested members of the public can call in to the free audio teleconference at 888-942-8512, pass code 658545#.

The meeting will be held in the Commission Hearing Room, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike.

Written comments will be accepted through Aug. 2. They may be submitted through the federal government's rulemaking website, www.regulations.gov, using Docket ID NRC-2013-0107.
