New Director Chosen for NRC Safety and Safeguards Office

Longtime employee John W. Lubinski has been named director of the agency's Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards.

John W. Lubinski has been selected as the director of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS), the agency announced March 13. Lubinski will transition into the position later this month. He succeeds Marc Dapas, who retired in February 2019.

NMSS is responsible for regulating activities that provide for the safe production of nuclear fuel used in commercial nuclear reactors; the safe storage, transportation, and disposal of high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel; and the transportation of radioactive materials regulated under the Atomic Energy Act.

"John Lubinski is a proven leader with a wide range of experience at the NRC, having served in a variety of key roles across the agency for nearly 29 years," said NRC Executive Director for Operations Margaret M. Doane. "His dedication and commitment to ensuring public health and safety in his regulatory capacity makes him a superb choice for this important position."

Lubinski began his career at NRC as a mechanical engineer in NMSS in May 1990 and has served as Senior Enforcement Specialist, Office of Enforcement; Chief, Inspection Section; and Chief, Fuel Manufacturing Section in the office. He held several other key positions in the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, including Director, Division of Engineering. Most recently, he served as Deputy Director, Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response.
