Nuclear Regulatory Commission Workshop on Small Nuclear Reactors

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will hold a workshop at the agency headquarters in Rockville, Md., on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 8 and 9, to discuss generic issues regarding potential applications for so-called “small and medium-sized” nuclear reactors.

We’re going to examine how these ‘small’ reactor vendors would need to address the NRC’s requirements in areas including safety, security, decommissioning and emergency preparedness,” said Michael Mayfield, director of the Advanced Reactor Program in the NRC’s Office of New Reactors. “This meeting will help us and our stakeholders determine what issues need more clarification and get everyone’s expectations on the same page.”


This site has extensive coverage of small nuclear reactors and hopes that the NRC workshop will lead to small reactors obtaining licenses and to changing rules that penalize small reactors.
