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 Environmental Report (PCER)

The Pre-Construction Environmental Report (PCER) provides the information requested by the Environment Agency in its guidance Process and Information (P&I) Document, to allow their detailed assessment of the UK EPR™ reactor environmental impact.
The Pre-Construction Environmental Report is divided into 12 chapters.  The full list of the chapters and associated sub-chapters is available in the PCER Table of Contents.
