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.

Introduction to the Safety, Security and Environmental Report (SSER)

The Safety, Security and Environmental Report (SSER) for the proposed UK EPR™ design addresses the requirements of the ONR and EA Generic Design Assessment process. It provides design, safety and environmental information wich has supported the detailed assessment of the UK EPR™ design against UK safety and environmental standards. The SSER, on this website, comprises two main documents: the Pre-Construction Safety Report (PCSR) and the Pre-Construction Environmental Report (PCER)`. A number of supporting documents, provide further information in a number of areas.

Other UK EPR™ GDA Submissions
Design Reference Configuration
defines the main technical requirements for the UK EPR™ design and the reference design configuration supporting the GDA submission, including design changes introduced during the GDA process. It also lists items which are outside the scope of GDA.

The UK EPR™ GDA Submission Master List defines the documents underwriting the UK EPR™ design and which are included in the scope of the Generic Design Assessment submission.
