The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has recently published a new Regulatory Guide 1.233 that endorses a DOE-industry initiative called the "Licensing Modernization Project" approach for a licensing framework for advanced non-LWR reactors. An NRC-sponsored project has been developing a recommended approach for fitting large external hazards such as large earthquakes and high winds into the LMP framework in a seamless way. This panel session will discuss the technical and regulatory elements of the proposed approach, ongoing work to try out the framework on a few sample problems, and issues with implementing it in a way that designers can use easily.
