The Utility Radiological Safety Board (URSB) of Ohio was established by the Ohio General Assembly as part of Amended Substitute House Bill 111 in July of 1989 and later revised by Amended Substitute House Bill 215 in June 1997. The Board’s purpose is to develop a comprehensive policy for the State regarding nuclear power safety. The Board’s objectives are to promote safe, reliable, and economical power; establish a memorandum of understanding with the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the State; and recommend policies and practices that promote safety, performance, emergency preparedness, and public health standards that are designed to meet the State’s needs.
The URSB membership consists of six state agencies: the Ohio Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and Health; the Ohio Emergency Management and Environmental Protection Agencies; and the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. The URSB has a Working Group comprised of member agencies’ staff to support the Board and a Citizens Advisory Council (CAC), which provides the Board with citizen concerns. Board meetings are held quarterly at the offices of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency at 2855 West Dublin-Granville Road, Columbus, Ohio. The meetings are open to the public.
