Abstract

This paper is a review of some of the regulatory documents that bind the operation of nuclear power plants in Canada. The Supercritical Water Reactor is a new reactor that Canada is interested in building in the coming years. It is imperative that the regulations under which the reactor is operated are relevant to its operating conditions. This study examines some of the regulations the nuclear power industry adheres to, to determine their applicability to this new reactor under all plants states –normal operating conditions, anticipated operational occurrences, design- and beyond design- basis accidents scenarios.
