The draft report contains a number of recommendations. The third meeting focused on strategies for implementing recommendations and briefings by the NRC licensing offices and the regions. The purpose of this meeting is to review, discuss, and propose individual recommendations on the role and future direction of regulatory research for Commission consideration. The Expert Panel will also discuss their perspectives and responses to questions posed to the panel by NRC Chairman Richard A. Meserve.
