Letter to DOE Secretary Rick Perry Regarding Pace of International Civil Nuclear Trade Authorizations


Excerpt: “The purpose of this process is to identify potential national security implications before a domestic supplier can or cannot engage in negotiations with a potential customer and nation. However, the pace of the process may be inhibiting nuclear commerce.” A just released report by the Nuclear Innovation Alliance, “states the process for specific Part 810 authorizations took an average of 130 days in the 1990s. In recent years, the average processing time for certain specific applications is nearly 400 days.”
