REP Program Manual

The REP Program coordinates the National effort to provide State, local, and Tribal governments with relevant and executable planning, training, and exercise guidance and policies necessary to ensure that adequate capabilities exist to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from incidents involving commercial nuclear power plants (NPPs).

This manual serves as the principal source of policy and guidance for the FEMA REP Program.

Federal regulations in 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 350 address FEMA’s role in conducting assessments and issuing findings regarding offsite emergency plans/procedures for responding to radiological emergencies at commercial NPPs.
