PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Westinghouse Electric Company today announced that it opened a new regulatory affairs office in
Westinghouse’s new office is located approximately one block from the NRC. The move to 11333 Woodglen Drive, Suite 202, was finalized during summer 2015.
The 4,000-square-foot space includes large and small conference rooms available for use by Westinghouse customers when preparing for meetings with the regulator during times when high-priority customer issues are being discussed and NRC conference space is limited. A reading room also is available, facilitating NRC review of Westinghouse proprietary information in support of customer license amendment requests. These facility resources are expected to save costs associated with travel and staff time for NRC-conducted Westinghouse and customer audits.
The new office houses a three-person team that provides ready access to the full complement of Westinghouse technical, legal, licensing and regulatory experts from around the world. “Last year our regulatory affairs office hosted approximately 1,500 customers and visitors,” said
The new location features close proximity to public transportation, with the Metro’s Red Line only one block away; abundant and close, at-cost parking; and a growing suburban area that offers a mixed residential and retail environment, including nearby hotels.
