The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) recently published a letter form Terrestrial Energy responding to the agency’s Regulatory Issue Summary (RIS) 2016-08. RIS 2016-08, published on June 7, 2016, is a NRC request for information regarding future nuclear reactor license filings.

Terrestrial Energy in its letter stated that it plans to submit an application to the NRC for a design certification or a construction permit “no later than October 2019.” Before filing either application, the agency will engage in pre-application consultations with the agency, including the submission of white papers and topical reports. The company indicated it will provide steps for moving forward these activities in 2017.
