The MAP-X Portal

The NRC’s Mission Analytics Portal-External, or MAP-X, is a tool designed to modernize and enhance communications with licensees while maintaining openness with the public. The NRC is using state-of-the-art development tools and expects additional MAP-X features will further enhance the agency’s online capabilities.

Licensees can use MAP-X to create verified profiles for editing, submitting, and checking the status of requests and reports made through the portal. Additionally, users will be able to see previously submitted requests and reports via the portal.

Licensees have the option of using the MAP-X portal, or they can use established submission methods.

In 2021, the NRC released its first module for Web-Based Relief Requests (WRR). Commercial U.S. nuclear power plant licensees can use the MAP-X portal to create and submit proposed alternatives to certain requirements in NRC’s regulations. These requests are allowed under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 50.55a(z), “Alternatives to codes and standards requirements.”

In 2022, the NRC released a module which will allow operating reactor licensees to submit NRC Form 361, Event Notification Worksheet, electronically. Note that licensees are still required by regulation to communicate all events directly to the Headquarters Operations Office. This electronic form is intended to simplify communication and data management.
