NuScale SMR makes history as first to receive US regulatory design approval

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has completed its Phase 6 review – the last and final phase – of the design certification application (DCA) for NuScale Power’s small modular reactor (SMR), the first time an SMR has received regulatory design approval.

US-based NuScale said the NRC had issued a final safety evaluation report (FSER), which represents completion of the technical review and approval of the NuScale Generation IV SMR design.

“With this final phase of NuScale’s DCA now complete, customers can proceed with plans to develop NuScale power plants with the understanding that the NRC has approved the safety aspects of the NuScale design,” the company said in a statement.
