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. Consistent with that policy, NuScale Power, LLC, formally communicated its intent to make application for certification of the NuScale design in the future and requested pre-licensing interactions with the NRC in a letter dated January 23, 2008. By letters dated February 12, 2010, and September 23, 2010, NuScale has identified several technical areas for discussion and topical report submittal during pre-application activities.
