The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) has completed the first phase of a vendor design review of Terrestrial Energy Inc’s Integrated Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®). The design is the first advanced reactor to complete the first phase of the CNSC’s regulatory pre-licensing review.
The vendor design review provides an opportunity for CNSC staff to assess a design prior to any licensing activities, enabling the vendor to identify potential issues that would require resolution.
