Regulatory Center of Excellence Charter

Regulatory Center of Excellence

Established May 23, 2022, the SRNL Regulatory Center of Excellence (RCE) provides innovative strategies that address mission-critical, regulatory compliance challenges at Department of Energy (DOE) sites.

Drawing upon the collective expertise of the Savanah River National Laboratory, Longenecker and Associates, and SRNL’s university partners, the RCE serves as a critical resource for connecting research developments and regulatory compliance strategies.

The Regulatory Center of Excellence has the ability and proven experience to develop strategies and collaborative approaches to regulatory interaction.

Work within the scope of the Regulatory Center of Excellence includes:

  • Building a diverse network of experts and researchers to support DOE interactions with regulators and community leaders to address emerging and existing regulatory compliance challenges, technical communication challenges, policy changes and community concerns.
  • Leveraging the DOE Office of Environmental Management (DOE-EM) experience and best practices to support other DOE missions that involve complex environmental issues requiring effective regulatory and stakeholder engagement strategies.
  • Providing counsel to federal program owners, other federal partners, state regulators, tribal governments, local governments, redevelopment organizations, and members of the community in the development of risk-informed strategies for environmental cleanup and closure within the bounds of their respective regulatory agreements.
  • Recommending strategies to build upon existing community interactions to strengthen communications and mitigate stakeholder concerns.
