Topical and Technical Reports for the BWXT mPower™ Design

This page provides access to topical and technical reports submitted by BWX Technologies, Inc. (BWXT), subsidiary BWXT mPower, Inc. to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for review or consideration.

The topical reports submitted to the NRC will be reviewed and if approved, the NRC staff will develop a safety evaluation report of the topic detailed in the submitted report and related to the BWXT mPower™ reactor design. The purpose of the topical report is to allow for a single NRC review of a safety-related topic that may apply to multiple nuclear power plants.

The technical reports will be considered by the NRC staff while developing the Design-Specific Review Standard and the staff will provide feedback during meetings that discuss the details of the report. No safety evaluation report will be developed for the technical reports.
