First Small Nuclear Reactor Design Approved by NRC

NuScale made history in August 2020 as the first SMR to ever receive design approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The NRC completed Phase 6 review—the last and final phase—of the Design Certification Application (DCA) for the company’s SMR with the issuance of the Final Safety Evaluation Report (FSER). The FSER represents completion of the technical review and approval of the NuScale 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.
