Availability Notice


This report supplements the final safety evaluation report (FSER) for the Economic Simplified Boiling-Water Reactor (ESBWR) standard plant design. The FSER was issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) as NUREG-1966 in April 2014 to document the NRC staff's technical review of the ESBWR design. The application for the ESBWR design was submitted on August 24, 2005, by General Electric-Hitachi (GEH) in accordance with Subpart B, "Standard Design Certifications," of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 52. This supplement documents the NRC staff's review of GEH's changes to the ESBWR design documentation in the design control document (DCD) since the issuance of the FSER. On the basis of the evaluation described in the ESBWR FSER (NUREG-1966) and this report, the NRC staff concludes that the changes to the DCD (up to and including Revision 10 to the ESBWR DCD) are acceptable and that GEH's application for design certification meets the requirements of Subpart B to 10 CFR Part 52 that are applicable and technically relevant to the ESBWR standard Plant design.
