Terrestrial Energy USA announced today it had informed the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) of its plans to license a small modular reactor (SMR) in the USA. Terrestrial said it intends to start “pre-application interactions” with the regulator this year and to make its licensing application in late 2019.
The NRC recently published a letter from Terrestrial responding to the agency’s Regulatory Issue Summary (RIS) published on 7 June last year. An RIS is an NRC request for information regarding future nuclear reactor licence filings.
