Congratulations to Morgan Lewis client NuScale Power on submitting to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) the first-ever application for design approval of a small modular reactor (SMR).
On December 15, the NRC Staff met with stakeholders to clarify its plans to develop over the next five years a process to review advanced reactors’ designs. This is one of a series of meetings that the NRC has initiated as it navigates a multiyear path toward being capable of licensing non-light-water reactors.
The UK government has confirmed its commitment to move forward with the construction and operation of Hinkley Point C, the first new nuclear plant to be licensed in the United Kingdom since 1987.
