RPM Change Summary Podcast January 2016

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 revision of the REP Program Manual (RPM) encompassed the input of a broad range of stakeholders and saw the follow-on implementation of the new RPM update and maintenance process. In general, the update focused on continued refinement of guidance, driven largely by questions and issues raised by Regional REP staff and offsite response organizations (OROs), as well as the incorporation of lessons learned from the implementation of the different scenario variables.
