Provides oversight of licensees to ensure they are operating their plants safely;
Develops and issues licenses for new nuclear power plants to assure their safe operation;
Provides regulatory oversight for research and development activities;
Furnishes the public with information about the safety, security, and regulation of nuclear power plants;

The NRC is an independent agency within the executive branch of government. The NRC consists of over 17,000 people and operates in a complex environment. The NRC employs a diverse workforce to serve as the safety and regulatory professionals that ensure the safe and secure operation of America's nuclear power plants. When the NRC receives a complaint or learns of a potential safety or security issue, the NRC works to quickly identify the facts and determine the scope of the issue.
The NRC strives to develop a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary process to understand and respond to potential public health and safety risks. The NRC protects people and the environment by ensuring the safe use of nuclear materials for beneficial civilian purposes while protecting people and the environment from health and safety risks from nuclear materials. The NRC is an independent federal government agency that regulates commercial nuclear power plants like Palo Verde.
Google Books pre-orders are in the form of scheduled releases. The available dates for your book are clearly indicated in the Released Date field. These dates are first-come, first-served, and cannot be changed once a book is scheduled. Once a book is scheduled, you may not pre-order that book again. Pre-orders are only available for eBooks.
Each book's release dates are two to five months after the book's officialrelease date. For example, the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book wasreleased in July 2010. It's scheduled for release in October 2011. That means Icould pre-order it in September 2011.
You can pre-order a maximum of three books at one time. If you pre-order two books and the third is scheduled for release the same day, we will start to process the second pre-order before the first one has been scheduled.
We also charge a per user fee if you have multiple people accessing your book, for example, if you're the author, you may want to also schedule a pre-order for your publisher, cover artist, and illustrator. You will need to create a Personal Use account to do this. 827ec27edc
