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.


The Pre-Construction Safety Report (PCSR)

The Pre-Construction Safety Report (PCSR) presents a detailed description of the architecture of the UK EPR™ systems and components, their safety functions and reliability and availability requirements, and an explanation of the codes and standards that have been used in the design. The PCSR aims to demonstrate that sufficient analysis and engineering substantiation has been performed to give high confidence that the UK EPR™ design meets its declared safety objectives.  The PCSR has undergone detailed assessment by ONR.
The Pre-Construction Safety Report is divided into 21 chapters.  A full list of the chapters and associated sub-chapters is available in the PCSR Table of Contents.
