A. 12 TENTH MEETING, January 24–25, 2005

The objective of this closed meeting was to continue work to develop a public version of the committee’s report. The committee also held a data-gathering session not open to the public to meet with three commissioners from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Chairman Nils Diaz and members Edward McGaffigan and Jeffrey Merrifield) to discuss what additional information the commission might be willing to make available to the committee on human-factors-related issues.
