Pre-Application Review of the NuScale Design
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has a policy of encouraging early discussions (prior to submission of a license application) with potential applicants (such as utilities and reactor designers) to offer licensing guidance and to identify and resolve potential licensing issues early in the licensing process. Pre-application reviews are currently in progress. The Design-Specific Review Standard for NuScale Small Modular Reactor Design has been developed to provide guidance to the NRC technical staff for review of the NuScale Design Certification Application (DCA). The draft NuScale DSRS was available for public comment in July 2015. The final DSRS was released in August 2016. The NuScale DCA is currently scheduled to be submitted to the NRC between October 31, 2016 and December 31, 2016.
