NRC pursues security enhancements: Although the NRC is confident that the security of RTRs ensures the public radiological health and safety, the NRC is working to gain Federal assistance to further enhance security. To this end, NRC, DHS, and DOE are working through a Government Coordinating Council sub- council on RTRs with the National Organization of Test, Research and Security at Research and Test Reactors Training Reactors (TRTR).
