Congress created the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as an independent agency in 1974 with the Atomic Energy Act to perform the regulatory duties formerly conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Some in the government and energy industries felt that the AECs dual responsibility of promoting the use of nuclear materials and regulating safety were conflicting agendas. Consequently, the NRC was created to regulate civilian uses of radioactive materials, while prioritizing the safety and protection of U.S citizens and the environment.
One of the main duties of the NRC is to regulate nuclear power plants nationwide. Other regulatory responsibilities include overseeing research, test, and training reactors, fuel cycle facilities, and medical, academic, and industrial uses of radioactive materials. The NRC is also responsible for transporting, storing, and disposing of nuclear material and its waste. The Commission is headed by five commissioners appointed by the President of the United States, with the approval of the U.S. Senate.
One of the most well-known incidents involving the NRC dates back to 1979 on Three Mile Island near Middletown, Pennsylvania, when a cooling malfunction melted half of a reactors core. Workers and the surrounding community panicked, fearing contamination would occur. Though the crisis ended without a dangerous release of radiation or a need to order an evacuation, it greatly altered the publics opinion of the nuclear industry and the NRCs regulation policies. After the Three Mile Island accident, the NRC placed greater emphasis on training operators, communication, teamwork, and having a larger human presence in the plants.
Today, the NRC continues to focus on nuclear regulation and is evaluating applications for new power plant sites. Nuclear power, unlike many types of power generation, does not emit gases that contribute to global warming and is therefore gaining popularity. In an article titled, Nuclear Power May Be in Early Stages of a Revival The New York Times reported in 2008 that the NRC was in the process of assessing applications for 34 nuclear plants across the U.S. This upsurge in site proposals is expected to create increased job demand at the NRC now and for the coming years
