NRC Issues Final Revision to Standard Review Plan (SRP) for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants: Light-Water Small Modular Reactor Edition

The NRC issued a final revision to the SRP “Introduction – Part 2, SRP for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants: Light-Water Small Modular Reactor Edition” section of NUREG-0800, “SRP for the Review of Safety Analysis Reports for Nuclear Power Plants: LWR Edition.”  Changes in the final revision include expansion of the scope of use of the new introduction to include any type of application under 10 CFR Part 52: early site permits, design certifications, standard design approvals, combined licenses, or manufacturing licenses. Additionally, throughout the document, the use of the term ‘‘iPWR’’ (integral pressurized water reactor) has been replaced by ‘‘SMR’’ (small modular reactor) for consistency. Finally, the historical summary paragraph related to SECY–11–0156 was removed. The effective date of this update is March 6, 2014.
