Public Version of UK EPR™ GDA Submission

 EDF and AREVA have obtained for generic design acceptance for the EPR™ reactor from the UK regulatory authorities.
The UK EPR™ design is based on the Flamanville EPR™ (FA3) plant being built in France but incorporates a number of design changes agreed through the Generic Design Assessment with the UK Regulators.

 The UK Office for Nuclear Regulation has issued guidance defining the process by which they will confirm their acceptance of new designs of nuclear power stations for construction in the UK.
 Similarly the UK Environment Agency has proposed a process by which they will assess generic design issues associated with discharges and wastes produced by new nuclear power stations.


Supporting Documents

As part of the UK EPR GDA submission, a number of supporting documents have been provided which supplement the information provided in the Safety, Security and Environmental Report (SSER). The topics covered are largely in the waste and decommissioning topic area and include: waste and spent fuel management options; interim storage facilities for spent fuel and Intermediate Level Waste; decommissioning waste inventory; arrangements for monitoring of liquid and gaseous discharges; the longer term proposed storage facilities for Intermediate Level Waste and spent fuel; the EPR™ integrated waste strategy; and the application of Best Available Techniques. A comparison of the EPR™ design against the HSE/NII Safety Assessment Principles has also been provided.
