On-site Transcription Support – NRC


On March 12th to 14th, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission held its 25th Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) at the Bethesda North Hotel in Bethesda, Maryland.  This critical event featured numerous speeches, panel discussions, and specialized technical sessions.  The RIC brought together over 3,000 participants, representing both industry and public interest groups, from more than 30 countries.

The NRC requested verbatim transcription for speeches given by Chairman Alison Macfarlane and each of the four commissioners, in addition to select panels and technical sessions, to be linked on the agency’s website.

An NCC Multimedia and Production Solutions (MPS) associate was on site for all three days of the conference to create an audio recording of the proceedings as well as prepare comprehensive notes documents in order for the team to generate accurate verbatim transcripts of record.  We delivered all transcripts to the NRC less than one week after the RIC concluded, and they were available for viewing at nrc.gov shortly thereafter, ensuring that interested members of the nuclear industry, advocacy groups, and the general public were able to promptly review the transcripts.

NCC utilized the wide-ranging skills and procedures of its MPS division for this project:

  •             on-site court reporting services
  •             accurate verbatim transcription
  •             thorough editing
  •             comprehensive quality control

NCC has provided the NRC with on-site captioning; transcription; and DVD authoring services since 2010, and we look forward to supporting the RIC for years to come.
