Develop Guidance for Staff Review of New Build License Applications for Advanced Reactor Projects
Project: Develop Guidance for Staff Review of Applications for Advanced Reactor Projects
Objective/Scope: Develop common criteria/guidance for technology-inclusive, risk-informed, and performance-based staff review of applications for advanced reactors. Document areas of commonality and differences between the Canadian approach and US approach.
Key Activities and Outputs: CNSC and USNRC staff are identifying the similarities and differences between their approaches to reviewing advanced reactor designs. Initial output will be a joint report comparing the USNRC’s Licensing Modernization Project and Canadian practice.
