Presented at:
32nd Annual CNS Conference

Niagara Falls, Canada
Session Title:
Reactor Safety and Licensing

John Krane (Bruce Power)


In 2009 a new Power Reactor Operating License (PROL) was granted to Bruce Power, Canada’s largest independent nuclear power generator. The PROL required the adoption of a large, multi year revision to one of the cornerstone referenced national standards, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) N285.0 and also introduced a new approach to the licensing process and structure. This paper will describe the basis of the new regulatory structure and required pressure boundary related PROL changes and will provide details of the resultant impacts, successful transition, implementation and sustainability of Bruce Power’s PBQA Program.
