On Monday 30th January, the Ottawa Branch of the Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS) is pleased to host a presentation by Messrs. Marcel De Vos and Kevin Lee, Senior Project Officers, New Major Facilities Licensing Division at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission.
Over the past several years, many technology developers have expressed interest in the construction and operation of SMRs in Canada. Consequently, the CNSC has been looking into the nuclear regulatory and licensing implications challenges for SMR-related activities. In 2016, the CNSC invited comments on a discussion paper DIS-16-04, “Small Modular Reactors: Regulatory Strategy, Approaches and Challenges”. Messrs. De Vos and Lee will provide an overview of the CNSC SMR discussion paper, the Vendor Pre-Project Design Review projects at the CNSC, some key international SMR activities, and paths forward and future follow-ups to the Commission.
Join us at this fine venue, greet new colleagues and former colleagues you have not seen for some time, and join in what will undoubtedly be an interesting discussion period.
Both CNS members and non-members are welcome (there is no fee for admission).
