NRC LIFTS PROBATION FOR GEORGIA’S AGREEMENT STATE REGULATORY PROGRAM

On August 27, 2014, the U.S. NRC announced that it is taking Georgia’s Agreement State program off probation after a review earlier this year found the state has made significant progress in addressing several areas of unsatisfactory performance found in an earlier review. The NRC placed Georgia’s program on probation in August 2013. The program will remain under “heightened oversight,” which involves frequent interaction with NRC staff.
