UK Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) said it is still waiting to
receive updated plans from EDF and Areva for the resolution of
outstanding items, known as GDA Issues, on the EPR design review.
had said in February that late or poor quality deliverables from EDF
and Areva for its generic design assessment (GDA) programme meant that
the schedule for the original resolution plan, expected to complete this
November, would not be met.
At the time, ONR was indicating a two-month schedule slippage, pushing final resolution into 2013.
