The Nuclear Regulatory Commission updated the public on its work related to the Digital Government Strategy, providing information on how it is building a 21st century digital government platform, evaluating progress and connecting with citizens.
In its update, NRC announced it will make available five application programming interfaces on information related to reactor operating status reports, power reactor daily event reports, operating reactor inspection reports, component defect reports and daily news releases.
"On August 6, 2012, the NRC responded to Milestone 2.1 of the Digital Government Strategy by proposing the following five existing customer-facing systems that we could 'web-enable' using application programming interfaces (APIs)," said NRC on its website. "These APIs would give developers ready access to high-value data feeds for subsequent analysis and use."
