Scheme Nickname: 
Formal ALJ hearings for non-nuclear matters (debt collection, etc.)

This scheme covers formal proceedings for several non-programmatic areas that require APA hearings by statute, including: (a) collection of delinquent debts owed NRC or other federal agencies through administrative or salary offset (Part 16); (b) imposition of civil penalties under the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act (Part 13); and (c) suspension, termination, or denial of NRC funding to program participants or applicants based due to noncompliance with requirements under civil rights statutes (e.g., Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Rehabilitation Act, Age Discrimination Act, and Title IX) (Parts 4 & 5).

Comments/Notes on Adjudication Structure: 
Administrative appeals (to the Commission) are only permitted in civil penalty actions under the PFCRA and findings of civil rights violations by program participants receiving or applicants seeking, NRC funding; there is no appeals of adverse NRC decisions in debt collection actions.
Types of Adjudication:

Distinctive Features:
