The FCWMD has approximately 12 standards maintained by the FWDCC. Many of these standards are endorsed by the NRC and written to support the existing LWR fleet of reactors (e.g., ANS‐57.1‐1992 Design Requirements for LWR Fuel Handling Systems). However, with the significant effort under way to develop and deploy advanced reactor (AR) concepts, many of these standards may either not apply to these AR concepts or require exemptions to be utilized to allow for their application. This panel will discuss the FWDCC maintained standards and identify potential issues and needs to update them to allow for their application to ARs.
