Doc­u­ments cited by The Times in its story on nuc­le­ar up­rat­ing prac­tices are col­lec­ted be­low. In the course of pre­par­ing the story, we drew heav­ily from ma­ter­i­al pub­lished by the Nuc­le­ar Reg­u­lat­ory Com­mis­sion, its Ad­vis­ory Com­mit­tee on Re­act­or Safe­guards and the En­ergy In­form­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion.
