Nuclear Engineering International: Canadian regulator receives first application for SMR
A recent Nuclear Engineering International article highlighted Global First Power's achievement in submitting the first license application for a Small Modular Reactor to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. An excerpt is available in italicized text below. The full article is available here.
A licence application to prepare a site for an SMR at Chalk River was submitted on 20 March, CNSC said. The regulator's licensing process begins with a "sufficiency review" of the application. If and when the project description is assessed as complete, the next step for the regulator would be to issue a notice of commencement. The project description would then become available for public comment as part of the environmental assessment process.
