GAO evaluated the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) policy of relocating its resident inspectors at least every 5 years.
Recommendations for Executive Action
|Nuclear Regulatory Commission||1. The Chairman, NRC, should adopt a flexible policy which encourages, but does not mandate, periodic relocations while retaining NRC management's prerogative of relocating individual residents when management determines that it is in the best interests of NRC.|
|Nuclear Regulatory Commission||2. The Chairman, NRC, should use alternative measures, such as those now being selectively used by some regional offices, to assess inspector objectivity.|
