Pre-Application Documents for the NuScale Design

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers public involvement in, and information about, our activities to be a cornerstone of strong, fair regulation of the nuclear industry. As such, the NRC believes that nuclear regulation should be transacted as openly and candidly as possible to maintain and enhance the public's confidence. Ensuring appropriate openness explicitly recognizes that the public must be informed about, and have a reasonable opportunity to participate meaningfully in, the NRC's regulatory processes. Toward that end, this page provides access to documents and correspondence related to the pre-application activities with NuScale Power regarding their NuScale small modular reactor (SMR) design.

This page includes links to files in non-HTML format. See Plugins, Viewers, and Other Tools for more information.

The following table provides access to publicly available letters and other pre-application correspondence between NuScale Power and NRC regarding the NuScale SMR design.
