External Credential Service for the Electronic Submittals - Adjudicatory Proceedings

The Adjudicatory Submissions system is used for filings in proceedings before the Commission or Atomic Safety and Licensing Board proceedings. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations require the use of electronic submittals in the agencyís hearings, consistent with the requirements and specifications set forth in the Electronic filing rule (72 FR 49, 139). Exceptions to the rule allow paper filings or filings on disc storage media only in limited circumstances.

For more details on this program, please visit the Adjudicatory Submissions Website.

This system is a secure, web-based database. In order to access this application, a user must obtain a digital credential. This credential is a digital certificate. A digital certificate is an electronic identification which establishes a userís credentials when processing transactions on the Web. The use of digital certificates allows the Adjudicatory Submissions System to uniquely identify each user. The process of obtaining the digital certificate is called credentialing.

For more details on the credentialing process, please visit Credentialing Overview.
