Introduction

The objective of this report is to provide Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) comments and advice to the Commission, Executive Director for Operations (EDO), and Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research (RES) staff on the "Advanced Reactor Research, Infrastructure Assessment" (Reference 1). This assessment identifies gaps in technology that need to be filled before new reactor designs concepts can be certified and deployed in the United States. Timely planning of RES activities is needed to enable the NRC to meet its obligations for certification of these new reactor designs.
