Many activities must be performed just before or soon after a nuclear facility concludes its mission and enters the transition from operations to decommissioning. These activities include assurance of immediate and long-term safety for the facility systems, human resources challenges, systems configuration changes, regulatory changes, and stakeholder relations. Long-term stewardship and eventual site closure activities must also be considered and addressed.
