Status of NRC’s “Readiness for non-LWRs” – Near-Term Implementation Action Plans

June 12, 2020

“The NRC staff developed a vision and strategy that was coordinated with industry stakeholders in the 2016-2017 timeframe. Its purpose is to assure that the NRC is ready to review potential applications for non-light water reactor (non-LWR) technologies effectively and efficiently.

To achieve the goals and objectives stated in the vision and strategy, the NRC developed implementation action plans (IAPs). Many of the key topics in the plans have been addressed through NRC review of industry and DOE-sponsored regulatory framework proposals. NRC has recently provided a detailed status and schedule for the specific activities already completed or in progress regarding the high priority and near-term (2017 – 2022) portion of the plan).”
