On July 12, 2023, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) held a public meeting to update progress on developing a regulatory framework for fusion energy. As the first meeting following the April NRC decision that separated fusion from fission regulations in the United States, it kicks off the progress that will be made as a result of the vote.
On June 9, the Fusion Industry Association (FIA) sent a letter on the importance of risk-informed fusion regulations to European Commission Commissioner Simson. The letter comes at a time when governments are increasingly looking into solidifying regulations for fusion energy, following recent regulatory decisions by the United States and United Kingdom. Early movers will have a competitive advantage in further shaping the industry, which spent over $500m on the supply chain in 2022.
On May 25, 2023, the Fusion Industry Association (FIA) sent a letter to Senator Carper, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and Senator Capito, Ranking Member, in support of the re-nomination of Commissioner Baran to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

The five US NRC Commissioners announced in a vote that fusion energy would be regulated under the same regime as particle accelerators.
The Fusion Industry Association (FIA) hosted our second annual conference on March 29, 2023 in Washington, DC.
FIA looks forward to working with the Senate for passage of S.1111, which would clarify fusion’s regulatory regime.
The Special Competitive Studies Project (SCSP) published an Interim Panel Report, Harnessing the New Geometry of Innovation, laying out actions for the U.S. to strategically position itself as a long-term leader of fusion energy acceleration and commercialization. The report is the fourth interim panel report using the work collected by the SCSP over the past…
In a meeting at the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions (NRC) on Tuesday, November 8, the Department of Energy, representatives of Agreement States, and private industry agreed that the regulation of fusion energy should be separated from the regulation of nuclear fission.
