NRC Meeting Dec. 17 to Cover Industry Proposals to Reduce Emergency Planning Zones for Small Modular Reactors

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff will meet Wednesday, Dec. 17, to discuss proposals from the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for a reduced emergency planning zone for small modular reactors.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2B1 of the NRC’s Two White Flint building at 11555 Rockville Pike in Rockville. The meeting will discuss NEI’s proposed generic approach, as well as an expected site-specific approach by TVA as part of its Early Site Permit application for small modular reactors at the Clinch River site in Tennessee.
