Registration for the event will begin March 1, 2019. Details are still being finalized, watch the TRTR website for updates.
Each reactor in the United States is unique but they all operate under the same operational principles. With limited budgets and a growing need for sustainability, the need for collaboration for unique solutions to common problems is vital.
The TRTR Annual Meeting provides a platform for reactors personnel from across the United States and abroad to come together and solve common challenges. Additionally, time is set aside annually for issues with the regulator and licensee interface.

U.S. NRC to Host Public Meeting on the NEIMA and New Criteria for Commercial Non-Power Reactors
Section 106 of the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act (NEIMA), “Encouraging Private Investment in Research and Test Reactors,” changes the criteria for whether a non-power reactor is licensed as a commercial facility. Before NEIMA, the criteria were based on how much a facility spends on commercial activities. The new criteria change this to be based on how much of the cost of owning and operating the facility is recovered from commercial activities. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will host a public meeting in Idaho Falls on September 26, 2019, 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., following the annual meeting of the National Organization of Test, Research, and Training Reactors, to get feedback from the public on the potential impact of this change on existing non-power reactors. The NRC encourages interested members of the public to review the full text of NEIMA, found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/512. The NRC will issue a formal meeting announcement with additional details on its Web Site: https://www.nrc.gov/pmns/mtg.
