This message is to inform interested stakeholders that the NRC has issued its final Near-Term, Mid-Term and Long-Term Non-Light Water Reactor (Non-LWR) Implementation Action Plans (IAPs).
The staff has developed a vision and strategy to assure that the NRC is ready to review potential applications for non-LWR technologies effectively and efficiently. The staff described the vision and strategy in “NRC Vision and Strategy: Safely Achieving Effective and Efficient Non-Light Water Reactor Mission Readiness,” which was published in the Federal Register on July 21, 2016, for stakeholder input. The NRC updated its Vision and Strategy Document to reflect stakeholder feedback in December 2016.

To achieve the goals and objectives stated in the NRC’s vision and strategy, the NRC has developed IAPs. The IAPs identify the specific activities the NRC will conduct in the near-term (within 5 years), mid-term (5-10 years), and long-term (beyond 10 years) timeframes.  In the fall of 2016 the NRC released its draft near-term IAPs to obtain stakeholder feedback. The staff also developed draft mid- and long-term IAPs, which were made publicly available in February 2017. The staff obtained stakeholder feedback on the IAPs during a series of public meetings held between October 2016 and March 2017. The staff also briefed the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) on March 8 and 9, 2017. The staff considered the ACRS comments and stakeholder feedback in the final IAPs.
