Materials Environmental Reviews

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires all federal agencies to evaluate the impacts of proposed major actions on the human environment.  The NRC complies with NEPA through regulations in 10 CFR Part 51.  To learn more about the NRC’s environmental review process, please see NRC's Role Under the National Environmental Policy Act Frequently Asked Questions and NUREG-1748 "Environmental Review Guidance for Licensing Actions Associated with NMSS Programs."

The following table contains a list of NEPA reviews currently underway for which information is available. Table contents will be updated as new information becomes available and as NEPA reviews are initiated and completed.
